Re: “Exodus? Tenants Flee a Newly Built Burlington Apartment Complex

Building more housing drives down costs of housing FOR A MINUTE, until people move to Burlington to live in that housing, then you have the same exact problem as before in addition to increased traffic congestion and parking difficulties and so on. Adding more housing is not the real solution to the problem. If anything, it's making Burlington a less desirable place to live. Maybe that'll drive away real Vermonters who are sick of seeing Burlington turned into a boring cookie cutter town you'd find in Anywhere USA. THAT is what will drive the housing prices down, not building more. And then the city will be filled with out-of-towners who only 'live' here because they're rich and can afford second homes. It's hard for property costs to go down when every single election the property tax rate goes up and up. Rent is out of control, home prices are out of control, property taxes are out of control...and yet nothing is really done about it. Miro wants to build more and more units to generate more tax revenue for the city but clearly doesn't care even slightly about the people who currently live here. It's a real shame and I cannot wait for a new mayor who will take Burlington in a GOOD direction, not just a "new" direction.

Re: “Burlington City Council Refuses to Put Park Question on March Ballot

And why the hell would anyone want a splash pad in city hall park?!?!? There's not even anywhere to change yours kids after they have gotten soaked in it. What am I supposed to do, change them right there in the middle of the park while the people who like to hang out all day in that park watch my naked children? No thanks. Why wouldn't you put this at a place that already has things for children and facilities to support it, like Oakledge or Leddy or LITERALLY ANYWHERE ELSE IN TOWN? What on earth has happened to common sense in this town? For god's sake, STOP THIS MADNESS

Re: “Burlington City Council Refuses to Put Park Question on March Ballot

I am absolutely DISGUSTED by our power and money hungry mayor who will stop at nothing to turn Burlington into a cookie cutter make-you-want-to-vomit-its-so-boring garbage town. And SHAME ON YOU to the city councilors who refuse to put it to a vote. What are you afraid of? If your plan is so great, surely more than 50% of registered voters will vote in favor of it! If not, THEN THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG HERE. If the majority doesn't want it done, WHY DO IT WITH OUR MONEY? STOP RUINING BURLINGTON WITH OUR MONEY! I am so angry with this horrible local government. THROW THEM OUT
