Re: “Council Approves 14-Story Building Height in New Burlington District

Beautiful Burlington began its descent of creating a walking mall of Church Street, and the commercial development around Pine, Champlain and that area. The only beautification Burlington has undergone since I was born is Battery Street.

Another 14 story building or the Bove Development isn't going to do much more damage., As a matter of fact the Bove development will improve the looks of that area.

The demise of the beautiful Burlington I once knew reminds me of the tv show with Andy Griffin (Mayberry) when a movie producer stumbled on Mayberry and was in awe of its simple, peaceful town. When he said he would shoot a film there, the whole town, except Andy of course, went wild, they changed their store fronts, dressed themselves up like "city slickers" and were about to cut down the centerpiece of downtown, a big beautiful oak tree. Of course the producer changed all that and dissuaded them. Fiction, sure as hell, but it's the story of many beautiful communities. There are better ways to keep up to date than destroying the fabric
of "once was." John L. Bove--the founders of Boves were my Aunt Victroria, and Uncle Louis
