Voting on Elgin Street promenade ends Thursday

Thursday will be the last day residents can weigh in on plans to create a promenade on Elgin Street in Burlington. The final phase of the Elgin Promenade, which connects Pearl Street to Martha Street, comes with a series of challenges and site constraints including land ownership, traffic flow of the nearby parking lot and underground utilities. This past year has been spent negotiating and working through these challenges in order to keep the design development of this public space moving forward. The concept options presented here will complete the final design and allow the city to continue to work with local approval agencies to acquire required permits in order for construction to take place in 2021.

The City is requesting feedback from the community on two concepts for the small urban park space as part of the Elgin Promenade Phase 4 project. This is called the Activation Area. This space has been designed to accommodate a variety of users and allows for active play, seating, shade, creativity and interest in the downtown core.  Both concepts presented will be public spaces that are accessible and comfortable to use by people of all ages and abilities. 

Residents are invited to review the two concepts available for Elgin Street Promenade and vote for their favorite. It is important to note the images are concepts only; the final structures will not be the exact images shown here.
