WELCOME

TO OUR FALL/WINTER RECREATION & PARKS ACTIVITY GUIDE!

What a great time to enjoy fall and winter both indoors and out. We have fantastic parks and exciting program/event offerings for YOU and hope you will take full advantage of what your community has to offer. Our Halloween events continue to be supported by our community as we enhance the offerings with our Halloween Spooktacular adding a Trunk-or-Treat element. The Drive-InMovie is back by popular demand from last year with a theme of “Finding Dorey” Under the Sea. New for fall/winter are “Grandparents Day” and the “Teddy Hibernate” both at the historic Wheeler Homestead, and “Bikes-n-Bites” at Veteran’ Memorial Park, where you can enjoy great food trucks with friends and family. There are also many, new programs including a full Yoga series, expanded Jazzercise classes for adults, increased Lil’ Tots programming for our preschoolers, teen adventures and great 55 & Better bus trips. Which brings me to the Power of PLAY. Are you getting your daily dose? Play shapes our lives and develops us into HAPPY human beings at any age.  So get out there and PLAY in our parks or programs as it shapes the brain, opens the imagination and invigorates the Soul.

YOU have the POWER. Warmly, MAGGIE

I am pleased to join with Maggie Leugers, our Director of Recreation and Parks, to invite you to take a close look at all of our fine recreational offerings and programs in our Fall/Winter Activity Guide. In survey after survey, access to high quality recreational programs consistently ranks as one of the most important and valued services that a community can provide to its residents. Maggie and her team as well as the many partners who work with us on our recreational programs, special community events and in our parks do an amazing job not only meeting but exceeding the expectations of residents. And you will see more efforts related to our programs and to our public spaces in the weeks and months ahead. South Burlington taxpayers and residents have made a very significant investment in public and open spaces and we are going to be working hard to make sure that you receive great value as a result of these investments. In the meantime, I am sure there are recreational programs in the Activity Guide that will be of interest to you and your family or friends. So sign up for one or more; these programs are for you! Thanks, KEVIN DORN

PILLARS OF RECREATION & PARKS 1. CONSERVATION Our parks are critical in the role of preserving natural resources that have real economic benefits for our community.

We are the leaders, often the only voice in our community, to protect open space, connecting children to nature, and providing education and programming that helps communities engage in conservation practices.

2. HEALTH & WELLNESS We lead the nation in improving the overall health and wellness of communities. We are essential partners in combating some

of the most complicated and expensive challenges our country faces-poor nutrition, hunger, obesity, and physical inactivity. 3. SOCIAL EQUITY Access to our public parks and recreation are a RIGHT, not just a privilege. Every day we are working hard to ensure that all

members of our community have access to the resources and programming we offer. Very few–if any–can claim the same.

SOUTH BURLINGTON’S NEW DOWNTOWN South Burlington has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a downtown for our City. With the approval of the TIF District, the City is one of only seven Vermont communities privileged to use this financing tool to fund parks, attractive and inviting streetscapes, parking, stormwater management and environmental improvements. In a Tax Increment Financing District (TIF District), property value growth (future development) pays for today’s

public projects. In our TIF District, the City may hold aside a portion of the new tax revenue generated from new private development. This includes both new municipal and new education (state) property taxes. The City may collect and hold aside these TIF District revenues for 20 years. These revenues may only be held to finance City Center public projects.

PROPERTY TAXES ONTHE NEW DEVELOPMENT

2012 PROPERTY TAXES:

CITY GENERAL FUND & STATE EDUCATION FUND

Citizens, committees and property owners have been weighing in on the design of a new park, new streets, and public buildings. The City has initiated several projects, and the first - Market Street and the City Center Park (Dumont Parcel) - are expected to be ready to break ground in 2017. For this to happen, the City Council will need to ask voters to consider approving TIF District financing for these two projects.

|


GREAT TO KNOW! Each City budget passed since 2012 has set aside funding for public buildings and included an annual contribution built into the current tax rate. This means that by the time a public vote occurs to approve the development of a public facility (for which TIF District Financing only covers a share of the cost), such as a new library, the property tax rate is not anticipated to increase as a result.

Projects begin by asking you for help. Your vision, ideas, and comments

The City can adjust the number of public projects undertaken to match available funding. While the City has many potential planned projects in City Center, they are not mutually dependent on each other to be built. Before deciding to construct a project, revenue sources can be assessed.

Volunteer for and/or join the South Burlington City Center Collaborative

The City only owns roadway right-of-ways and some park land in City Center. The rest is privately held by more than 30 different owners inside the TIF District, and many more within the City Center District. Get Involved!

are extremely valuable - whether in a workshop, via e-mail or over the phone. This year, projects that are likely to be initiated include the Public Library and a Pedestrian/Bicycle conveyance over I-89. The City needs the public’s input to develop preferred concepts.

(SB3C). This organization is looking for volunteers to become involved with event planning, business outreach and otherwise making City Center a community gathering place through design and culture. Contact them at info@sb3cinc.com.

STAY UP TO DATE ON CITY CENTER NEWS & EVENTS.

The City’s website - www.sburl.com - contains a wealth of information on City Center projects and initiatives. Sign up for City Center E-Updates! The City Council receives updates at their meetings from City Staff at least once a month – check the City Council meeting agenda for dates and times. Please read the City’s Capital Improvement Program. Updated annually, it has information on proposed funding and expenditures for projects. Need additional information or have questions? Call 802-846-4107.
