The Chamberlin Neighborhood Airport Planning Committee (CNAPC) is coming to a close on its list of neighborhood enhancement recommendations for city council consideration.
At their May 26 meeting with consultant Bob Chamberlin of Resource Systems Group Inc., CNAPC members put the finishing touches on the civic and transportation enhancements and communication pathways that will be presented at the third and final community forum on Tuesday, June 7.
The results are based heavily on positive feedback from CNAPC members and the public, but they were also influenced by project readiness, professional opinion (city staff and consultants), identified project leadership, and estimated cost. Many of the concepts were presented at the April 28 community workshop.
Before reviewing priorities, Committee Chair Carmine Sargent asked Chamberlin to add a suggestion made by resident Bernie Paquette to plant wildflowers in the acquisition land.
Chamberlin identified 10 short-term recommendations, seven medium-term recommendations, and two long-term recommendations. Depending on the recommendation, funding sources include local, neighborhood, city transportation budget, Vermont Agency of Transportation, Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission Transportation Improvement Program, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Burlington International Airport, homeowners and property owners.
Details will be presented June 7, during a community forum at Chamberlin School.
