Penny for Paths

Connecting the City's Bicycle & Pedestrian Gaps
About Penny for Paths                    SBUR-005-Penny_for_PathsFULL_COLOR
In August of 2018, South Burlington residents voted to designate one penny (one cent) on the tax rate to the creation of bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure throughout the City.  We will be able to leverage the pennies to spend approximately $3 million on improved infrastructure.
The City's Bicycle & Pedestrian Committee held a series of four meetings and surveyed residents to identify bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure needs throughout the City in 2016.  The survey, which targeted each of South Burlington's four residential and commercial quadrants, identified 70 projects which the Committee then ranked.  Ranking categories included: Recreation Path Gaps, Crosswalk Gaps, Walking Trail Gaps, and Sidewalk Gaps.  After ranking these projects, the Committee was left with 20 top rated projects, many of which ended up on the Committee's Penny for Paths priority project list.

Active Penny for Paths Projects
Active Penny for Paths Projects include those projects that are currently undergoing design and/or engineering. Each project description will be updated as the projects move through design and into construction.


The City's Bicycle & Pedestrian Committee regularly receives comments and feedback from the public on projects that could be considered for inclusion on their Penny for Paths priority project list. If you have questions related to any of the Penny for Paths projects, please contact Erica Quallen, Deputy Director of Capital Projects at
