What Would You Improve in Burlington in 2013?

If you could make a New Year's resolution for our hometowns, what would it be?


More than 45 percent of Americans make a resolution every year, according to statisticbrain.com. Some people vow to live a healthier lifestyle, others promise to spend more time with family, and many say they will try to save money.

As millions of Americans make resolutions to improve their lives, what could we do right here in Burlington to make it an even better place to live?

More focus from our local leaders on economic development? On environmental or human rights concerns? What changes would you like to see come to our schools? 

Are there restaurants or businesses you would like to see come to town? What do you want to see happen to some of the vacant buildings? 

What is on your wish list? Tell us in the comments below and join the conversation!

If I could make a New Year's resolution on behalf of Burlington, it would be to paint lane lines on route 3a so that it's not a guessing game (especially for non-locals) as to whether it's one lane or two.

Enforce the NO ATVs in conservation areas so we can walk in the woods without jumping out of the way for 3 kids on dirt bikes / ATVs. Protect our reservoir from dogs / people swimming in my drinking water. Have recreation events clean up after their 'games' so they aren't littered with Gatorade bottles. (thanks for asking)

FINISH the Town Overlay District with consistent signage and updated building facades. Clean up the 'construction zones' and figure out a palatable traffic pattern for Cambridge St. & parking lots & neighborhood side streets. Have Chamber of Commerce cajole a few small business / bistro / retail establishments to create a pedestrian friendly, colonial VILLAGE community along Rt3A.

If we truly want the town to be "walker-friendly," consider "biker-friendly" to be part of that and install bike racks at town locations such as town hall, library and so on; strongly encourage the stores in the town center (namely Shaw's/Busas, etc.) to install bike racks as well so that we don't have to tie up to trees and lightposts.
