Re: “Two Burlington Council Members Pay a Colleague for Campaign Work

Let me get this straight...let's say I'm on City Council. I accept monies from another counselor to campaign for her. Then my subsequent CC votes are supposed to be unaffected when that counselor wants me to vote aye or nay on upcoming issues???

Re: “Higher Purpose? Council Approves Zoning Change, Sends It to Voters

“When we say no to more housing again and again, we don’t force out of our community ... the rich people … The people we’re forcing out when we say no and no again are the poor and the disenfranchised." The mayor has finally come clean, gentrification is a go, poor people need to go.

In response to VTPolicyAnalyst.. the two are conflated because there is no way to separate them. It's called spot zoning when the city's zoning is changed like this to accommodate one developer. If we stay within PlanBTV, we do not get the uglee building you see.. that because there is no above ground parking, and we get a human scale livable city.

Re: “Council Approves Preliminary Agreement With Burlington Town Center Developer

Now they are going to try to put the vote to approve the TIF in August.. when turnout is the lowest.

Re: “Mayor, Developer Reach Agreement on Burlington Town Center Redevelopment

My understanding (which could be flawed), it that Burlington will hold a vote in November to approve the 22 mil in funds and if the initiative does not pass, the whole deal is off. Does anyone know of this? It would be nice.... if we still had a say that mattered.
