CEDO Burlington 

Published September 24, 2008 at 3:09 p.m.

The Community and Economic Development Office is a department of the City of Burlington. Its staffers work with the community to foster economic vitality; preserve and enhance neighborhoods, quality of life and the environment; and promote equity and opportunity for all residents of Burlington. Working in partnership with citizens, the public and private sectors and other city departments, CEDO is the energy behind myriad Queen City projects, from refugee craft fairs to the revitalization of the Burlington Waterfront. Its activities are funded through federal and state grants and the City of Burlington Housing Trust Fund.

CEDO supports economic growth in practical and concrete ways: through targeted tax incentives; business loans; a business-calling program; an award-winning Doing Business in Burlington guide; a downtown program; hands-on help with business planning, licenses and permitting; and help with lowering energy bills, finding office space, and accessing a high-speed telecommunications network.
