The City of South Burlington has recently been recognized by a program which honors Vermont’s top public places. The Vermont Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, the Vermont Planning Associations, the Vermont Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, the American Society of Civil Engineers, Vermont Section and the Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Council jointly announced the winning 2014 Vermont Public Places Awards. Together these groups initiated the Vermont Public Places Awards to recognize special public spaces, the corridors that connect them, or networks of public spaces which have been defined or enriched by planning or design.
South Burlington’s Open Space Report was one of five recipients of the The Vermont Public Places Honor Awards. The award acknowledges the work of the City of South Burlington, South Burlington Open Space Committee, T. J. Boyle Associates, and Front Porch Planning & Design.
A Merit Award was designated for South Burlington’s City Center - Market Street plan, recognizing the City of South Burlington, SE Group, VHB, and Shole Systems Design.
Awards will be presented by Governor Peter Shumlin at the Statehouse on March 19.
