Designing a City Green for South Burlington

Designing a City Green for South Burlington

Last month, people gathered at a workshop with Wagner Hodgson consultants, who are completing a study on a city green for South Burlington. The consultants’ goals are to recommend a location and concept for a city green. Amy Houghton, a landscape designer with Wagner Hodgson, provided a history of green space in community cores—from village greens to downtown parks. She presented many ideas of what can be in and around a green space for consideration. Participants were then asked to “green-light” or “red-light” these ideas and answer a series of questions regarding parks. 

Wagner Hodgson will take what they learned from this workshop and present a draft location recommendation on July 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the Auditorium at the South Burlington Library and City Hall, 180 Market Street. Mark your calendar to review this draft recommendation and provide comments! The results of this study will then be presented to the City Council. If this project is funded and a site is secured, there will be a full community process to design a city green.
