Re: “Uprooted: Burlington Farmers Market Seeks a New Home

As the article notes, there is a move to put on the ballot an advisory resolution on whether to halt plans for the City Hall Park $4 million "improvement" -- which will actually not just result in some 20 additional trees being cut, but will destroy the historic character of the park, substantially increasing paved surfaces, while replacing the central fountain with a series of water jets placed on a very large paved expanse.

Keep the Park Green and others are in the process of collecting the nearly 2,000 signatures from registered Burlington voters needed for this advisory resolution to get on the March ballot -- a very challenging task in a small city like Burlington. Yet Mayor Weinberger appears to say, according to the article, that he will ignore the results of any ballot resolution and just plow ahead with his costly plans for "improving" City Hall Park. Maybe he can legally do this. But that's not what local democracy should look like.
