Burlington

Town Meeting to consider alcohol license petition

Continue reading below

A proposal that the town petition the Legislature to allow Burlington to issue an additional 12 all-alcoholic licenses and two beer-and-wine licenses is among business that will be taken up by the Town Meeting that convenes on Monday at 7:30 p.m. at the high school. Other business includes several spending requests, including $1.995 million to purchase land on Great Meadow Road, potentially for a fire station; and $925,000 to renovate Simonds Park and the town common, contingent on the town’s receipt of a $400,000 state grant for the project. Voters will also consider authorizing $270,000 to purchase 64-gallon recycling containers to allow for automated recycling collection. There are several spending requests to fund negotiated contracts with town unions, department heads, and part-time workers. Another proposal would allow the town to purchase electricity in bulk for residents in order to save on rates. The meeting will consider several zoning changes. Included are requests by the Gutierrez Co. to rezone 15.3-acres on Wheeler Road, often referred to as The Canyon, to develop an office building on the site; and by Oracle America to rezone property on Van de Graaf Drive to construct a parking garage on the site, part of its campus off South Bedford Street. There are also two proposed bylaws that would regulate outdoor lighting in town, one a general bylaw covering residential areas and the other a zoning bylaw covering all other areas. The meeting will be asked to allow the town to seek state designation of the Canyon site as a priority development site under Chapter 43D, allowing it to receive expedited permitting.
