Click here for some new ideas for old Burlington: City of Burlington TAP Report Final

The City of Burlington is in the process of defining goals, setting direction, and finding strategies for smart growth and economic development.  With a grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency, the city contracted with a Technical Assistance Panel from the Urban Land Institute (ULI) to develop a set of guidelines.  ULI’s review included input from the Envision Skagit 2020 Initiative, and from the community during open public meetings.  The recommendations for conscious community development by the City of Burlington are linked to the pdf report above.  Businesses, shoppers, residents and property owners are encouraged to continue to participate where they can to help Burlington evolve into an even more convenient, walkable, livable, safe sustainable mixed use community.

Situated at one end of Burlington’s Historic District, the library (along with Maiben Park) will continue to be a great resource and destination in our future, livable community.
