Attention South Enders!

AARP VT and the City of Burlington want to hear your ideas and dreams for a more “livable” South End in Burlington – this is your opportunity to provide input into the efforts underway for Plan BTV South End.

SEABA wants to make sure folks are well informed on what is already rolling in the South End, and how these ideas may affect artists and creative businesses.
