Re: “Developer Gets Permit for 232 Burlington Apartments, Offers Parkland

I am a neighbor of the project. When SD Ireland and the developer held neighborhood meetings about it last spring they said they would complete and upgrade the sidewalk on Grove st, making it continuous from the Burlington/SB line to Chase Street. If they are still doing this and creating new park land and a trail, I think it starts looking like a pretty good deal. It will add additional density in the city where we need it and close out the open gap of the concrete plant with housing, a much narrower drive and a complete sidewalk network. No matter what, they will remove truck traffic from grove street and the significant noise nussaince of the concrete plant. If we could get the developer to kick in on improving the Riverside/Colchester intersection (which is a nightmare) this would be really good.

I would love to have the Grove/Chase intersection improved and get a bike lane on Grove st where's it's wider, but neither is really feasible. There's just no space at the intersection and most of the value in the bike lane would come from it continuting on the SB side. Just help us fix the Riverside/Colchester intersection and be done with it!
