Description

Local activists Marc Estrin, Amey Radcliffe, Ibnar Avilix, and Jan Schultz provide perspectives on alternate visions for Burlington as a follow up to the series developed on Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger's approach to development in the city.  Ibnar Avilix is a community actionist, co-founder: Savo Open Space-Burlington, co-founder of the South End Alliance, co-founder of Safe Streets Burlington, member of the Super Alliance, a growing alliance of grassroots community groups in and around Burlington.  Also, a member of the Vermont Sail Freight Project core team and core member of the development team for the New Maine Sail Freight system.  Ibnar also works with Pathways Vermont for the new Soteria Program.
