Re: “Burlington's St. Paul Street Makeover Confounds Drivers

I am intensely concerned about our city planners being out of touch with reality and what issues burlington faces. I am for safer biking and walking- but it should not be at the significant sacrifice of parking and driving. Biking to Burlington is only feasible for part of our population, and for that part of the population only the toughest could brave the Vermont winter and rainy weather. I agree that Vermonters and tourists should not be so dependent on their cars - but... news flash... by making it harder to find parking and get to a location youre only driving (pun intended) them away from our city. I mean that for both patrons and the businesses that have decided to be in the downtown. If the city doesnt take a serious look at their design decisions in terms of whether a project adds or removes parking the city isnt serving its constituents. I encourage others concerned about the city planners designing in a vacuum to look at the future great streets projects. Lots of parking will continue to be eliminated throughout the downtown. If there were plans to replace those close by spots in other projects - great! But since the city planners and DPW really dont prioritize parking ... only biking... Im losing faith.
