Do you want to know more about the committees working on interim zoning, but can’t make it to the meetings? A great way to not only read the meeting minutes and view the recordings, but contribute your comments, is through a new website called ‘Path to Sustainability.’

The Path to Sustainability is a series of initiatives to transform South Burlington into a community that will be a leader in sustainable food production, housing and quality of life, transportation and transit-oriented development, energy efficiency, natural resource protection, and economic vitality.

Project Coordinator Kimberly Murray said, “Our consultant Brandy Saxton from PlaceSense is creating and managing it for us. I am overseeing this project which we are calling the Communications and Public Participation Oversight for Interim Zoning Projects - South Burlington’s Path to Sustainability.”

By creating a new website with a recognizable URL, it will be easier to direct people to online content and to facilitate interactive online communication. PlaceSense has designed a WordPress-based website that uses the brand, look, and feel developed for the Path to Sustainability projects and the links between the multiple projects currently underway. The website includes a calendar, background information about each project/committee, places to post meeting agendas and minutes, a library of project materials and links as they are released, and opportunities for users to communicate back to the city.

The website is live at: www.sbpathtosustainability.com and will continue to evolve as projects move forward.
