Penny for Paths-Close the Gaps

On August 14th, South Burlington residents will have an opportunity to vote for needed funds to fill the gaps in our 24-mile multi-use path, crosswalks, and intersections. On May 7th the City Council voted unanimously to place a “Penny for Paths – Close the Gaps” initiative on the August 14 ballot.  South Burlington's multi-use path, a work in progress begun in 1990, is designed to connect neighborhoods, schools, parks and commercial areas to each other and to the paths of our neighboring communities. However the current path has significant gaps, the closing of which will improve safety and functionality by connecting us with where we want to go by foot, bike, roller blades or skateboard!

In 2014, the City of South Burlington, under the leadership of its Energy Committee (SBEC), joined a competition called the Georgetown University Energy Prize (GUEP).

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.
