CITY OF BURLINGTON NEEDS YOUR VOTE TO NAME THE CITY’S COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
The City of Burlington will soon embark on a planning process that will formulate a blueprint for the City’s development over the next twenty years. This type of planning process is used to produce a document known as a Comprehensive Land Use Plan. Over the next several months, the City will be reaching out to the public for input regarding Burlington’s future. The very first step in this process, however, is to select a name for Burlington’s Comprehensive Plan.
During the last few weeks, the City’s Planning Department has visited area high schools to discuss the concept of City Planning. The students participated in a planning activity and then proposed possible names for the City’s Comprehensive Plan. Now, the City is asking residents to select the name of the Comprehensive Plan from the names proposed by Burlington’s own students.
Proposed Names for Burlington Comprehensive Plan:
Visit www.BurlingtonNC.gov/NameThatPlan to cast your vote before 5:00PM on December 16th. You may also call 222-5110 to cast a vote.
