Re: “Marketplace Futures: How Burlington Aims to Reorganize 'Downtown'

They want a Revitalization District that extends from S. Winooski to Lake St. and from Main to Pearl St.??? Too big, too many, too much! That is a whole lot of blocks to make as lively as Church St. "There's an inconsistent vibe throughout the rest of downtown"? It's a City! It's not a Planner's dream - it's not a Project. It's a city, and we should see what its people want, not just its planners and developers. Let's take care of the sidewalks and fix up the trees and grass in the park. Then we'll talk.

Re: “Don Sinex Will Pay for Some Holiday Parking in Burlington

Is he buying himself some good will? Is he buying himself some good will? I would say so, wouldn't you? Either that or he's buying back some bad will.

Re: “Letters to the Editor (11/14/18)

Pardon, but "SputnikNuts" in his above letter talks about dying trees. Actually, only half of those being removed in the new Plan are sick at all, and they're not Dying. The other half are perfectly healthy, which is why people want to keep them. Open. Up. Your. Eyes.

Re: “Radio DJ Mike Luoma Fired From the Point

How is "Boo" a stinging rebuke? I think these days it's a polite and mild comment.

Re: “Burlington City Council Votes to Re-Redesign City Hall Park

I'd like to respond to a comment for my previous comment. The person said,
"Jesus Christ on a cracker. You people. You can't "bully" trees. They are trees, not people. You also can't force something that is dying to live. Science doesn't work that way."

Did Jesus stand on a cracker? No, it was a joke. The idea of the plan "bullying the trees" was a metaphor. We believe that science will support the saving of most full-grown trees in City Hall Park. The trees aren't dying all at once. Keep the Park Green is not against progress, or science, or fixing up the park. It is simply against taking more than half the trees for the sake of the design of the Plan. We need to find a compromise, and that is why we have this Resolution. Bless the City Council for seeing our point. This is democracy in action.
