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?
The South Burlington Public Art Gallery is featuring a new exhibition titled “Vermont Vernacular” of paintings, mixed-media works and photography by four regional artists: Linda Finkelstein of South Burlington, Kathleen Fleming of Charlotte, Susan Larkin of Isle La Motte and Phil Laughlin of Williston. The latest exhibition at the South Burlington Public Art Gallery brings together four artists who call the Green Mountain State home. Each is inspired by the natural beauty of the landscape but captures it through a different perspective, style, and medium. Are you an artist? Contact the Gallery Curator if you are interested in finding out more about showing in the gallery.
Check in with the Senior Center for coffee or sign up for lunches (now two per week) and see their calendar for many other activities – from games to jazzercise.
This year the City is working on the design to connect the park to Market Street and Garden Street, this will integrate City Center Park and the stormwater area into one continuous recreation area. City Council will be considering a ballot item on this connection this winter.
The South Burlington Public Library now has a Podcasting/Video Blogging Studio open for reservation in four-hour blocks.
Get updates, announcements, and progress photos from time to time on the City Center Facebook page.
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.
Allard Square, located on Market Street is one of the new projects that was complete in 2018. This is an affordable housing community for seniors. There are 39 apartments located at Allard Square and 25 of the apartments are subsidized so renters only pay approximately 30% of their income.
To learn more about new projects please contact the Planning and Zoning office.
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.
