Press conference announcing the launch of the new Web site AvenueForEveryone.com, the first major outreach and education tool produced by the North Avenue Task Force as part of the Burlington City Council North Avenue Pilot project.
Rich Nadworny - The North Avenue Task Force, Kelly Stoddard-Poor - AARP, Dave Hartnett - North District City Councilor, Steve Crafts - Owner of Place Creative, and Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger.
The new Web site, http://www.avenueforeveryone.com is the Task Force’s first major public outreach project, created by BTV resident members of the North Ave. Task Force with financial support from the AARP and content support from Burlington DPW. Up to now the North End of Burlington has been inundated with some misinformation and misperceptions about the pilot project to improve North Avenue. The new site is one step to help residents understand the changes afoot and to enable them to make informed decisions.
The pilot has become a controversial topic fueled by area media coverage and lawn signs. AvenueForEveryone.com is one of the Task Force’s efforts to help create a respectful and impactful dialogue on the changes envisioned for Burlington’s New North End.
