City Announces Next Police Chief
Shawn Burke poised to assume the helm of South Burlington Police Department
The City of South Burlington has reached a tentative agreement with Shawn Burke to be the next chief of police. Burke will fill the position upon the retirement of Chief Trevor Whipple in January 2019.
“Shawn Burke has the exact profile that we were looking for in a Chief to follow in Trevor’s footsteps,” said Kevin Dorn, City Manager. “We have one of the premier departments in the state, if not in New England, and we had the opportunity to go out and recruit the very best candidate for this job.”

THANK YOU FOR KEEPING YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE
During the two-year measurement period, SBEC hosted or participated in over 50 events, laying the foundation for ongoing progress. South Burlington residents took action and are now saving over $750,000 in energy costs per year as a result – and continued savings will lead to more than $5 million in their pockets over time.

What's happening in City Center?
In City Center Park, volunteers spent the summer removing the invasive weeds in the park. Now, pre-construction meetings are underway and path layout has commenced. City Center Park is one of the first infrastructure projects to begin in the TIF District.
Allard Place, a Cathedral Square project, is scheduled to commence this month with clearing and site work. Managed by Snyder Braverman, the project will provide 39 units of much needed senior housing in the heart of City Center. The facility will also provide wrap-around services through the SASH program, run by Cathedral Square.
We Work to Keep Your Water Clean
Formed in 2005, our stormwater utility maintains and improves the City's stormwater infrastructure. This includes management of water that runs off rooftops, paved and gravel roads, driveways, parking lots, and other hard services after a rain storm. This summer, there are several projects under construction to improve the current infrastructure, ultimately improving the water quality of the streams and Lake Champlain.
Your Team Keeping You Safe
The City's Public Safety team includes the police, fire & EMS, and public works departments. These men and women work around the clock to keep our community safe—whether that be clear plowed roads, emergency medical services, traffic control, or fire prevention.
Planned City Development
There are many projects throughout South Burlington in various stages or planning or construction. Each project passes through the Planning & Zoning office—including permits, development review, and planned growth. Regulations govern the development within the City, including land development regulations.
The most recent version is now available.
Our Parks and Natural Areas
Within the City, there are city parks, community parks, and natural areas. Along with these designated public spaces, recreation trails and paths run throughout the City.
