hanks to the $1.9 million communications bond approved last fall, public safety radio communication in South Burlington has taken a giant leap forward.

Over. “This insures that emergency responders receive accurate information the first time”

New radios, new tower receivers, and the cutting-edge technology behind the equipment is in place. The upgrade has improved the quality and strength of radio communication. No longer are the common words “I didn’t get that. Please repeat,” being uttered. “We have an increased coverage area and our transmissions are clearer. This insures that emergency responders receive accurate information the first time—saving precious seconds,” reports fire chief Doug Brent who leads emergency services for the City. Every vehicle within Police, Fire, EMS, and Public Works has been equipped, as well as individual radios for each team member. Designed specifically for emergency responders, the radios are a huge improvement. Firefighters with gloves can better operate the knobs. The radios are capable of expanding to the systems of neighboring communities. And, every emergency responder can rely on clear, accurate transmissions.

Breaking Ground

In City Center Park

A natural oasis in an urban setting

I

n the heart of the City, walk within nature and experience wonder, leaving refreshed and calmer than when you entered. This is a primary goal for City Center Park – a new park under construction this summer. Located on land purchased from Dumont Construction in 1975 with funding from the Land and Water Conservation Fund, City Center Park is located directly south of Market Street. It will be the first natural area park in the City to be entirely accessible – whether by stroller, wheelchair or walker. The park design features a central clearing, walking paths and a recreation path, play equipment, and several discovery areas. Most of the existing site will be preserved and enhanced: small wetlands, a successional forest that is primarily red maple, white pine, poplar and some oak, understory shrubs such as beaked hazelnut, viburnums and witch hazel, and ground level leafy plants

4

such as ferns and woodland flowers. An unusual aspect preserved in the design is a large stand of Canadian yew – one of the few native evergreen shrubs that top out at 30 inches. Just at the edge of the park, a demonstration gravel wetland is planned which will capture water sheeting down Iby Street towards Tributary 3 to the Potash Brook. This gravel wetland will treat approximately 50% of the water washing off the road and driveways before it reaches the natural area. This will improve the quality of the water in Tributary 3 – contributing to efforts in the watershed that will aid in cleaning up Lake Champlain. Construction is scheduled for late in 2017 and early in 2018. Improvements are already underway – this parcel is the pilot site for the Weed Warriors – a new City program to remove invasive plants. The site is currently loaded with invasive buckthorn and some honeysuckle. The park’s wetland permit conditions construction on removal of these invasive species (ongoing) and overplanting with natives (which will occur in 2018). Future phases for this park include a recreation path connection across Tributary 3 to Garden Street and Market Street.


HELP the CITY E

ach day, on every street and neighborhood our City is bustling with activity. Your daily routines bring you into contact with areas of the City that we might not see every day. We need your help to identify problem areas on our roads, with stormwater, damaged signage, and more. With more than 90 miles of roads in the City, your eyes can be ours! Here is one example. The Department of Public Works does not routinely survey the City for potholes. However, when a report of a pavement issue is received, it is addressed by the team and added to the repair schedule. Another example—a neighborhood street light is out and needs replacement.

stablished in 2005 as Vermont’s first stormwater utility, South Burlington Stormwater Services manages the City’s stormwater drainage and treatment systems. The City contains all or a portion of five streams impaired by stormwater runoff, the highest number in any community in Vermont.

• Provides technical assistance to property owners who want to improve their stormwater system to meet current standards. A valid stormwater permit adds to the value of your home and property.

W H AT I S S T O R M WAT E R ? Stormwater is the water that runs off impervious surfaces such as rooftops, paved and gravel roads, driveways, parking lots, and other hard surfaces after a rain storm. Stormwater can be seen flowing along the side of the road during rainstorms. This water flows in road side ditches, or is collected by the storm drains that are visible along the curb line of paved streets and parking lots. Storm drains are part of a drainage network consisting of underground pipes and concrete structures. The stormwater collected by the stormwater drainage system is discharged to streams, wetlands, or the Lake at stormwater outfalls (i.e. discharge points at the end of a pipe).

FOCUS PROJECT:

Stormwater can carry sediment and other pollutants, such as petroleum products, trash, phosphorus, and nitrogen, to our streams and the Lake. Unmanaged stormwater runoff can also cause erosion, flooding and can lead to streambank erosion. Over the last decade, our utility has worked to restore and protect our watersheds by efficiently identifying and managing stormwater problems, projects, and infrastructure. Some of these projects involve the replacement of deteriorated or undersized infrastructure like culverts, drainage pipes, and storm drains.

THE PROBLEM: The Commerce Square development, which includes Price Chopper, La Quinta, and Marco’s Pizza, had a separate stormwater drainage system that directed stormwater runoff generated on site to a small detention pond located at the back of the property. This detention pond was originally designed to reduce the risk of downstream flooding during large rain events, but was not designed to provide treatment of stormwater runoff during smaller, more frequent, rain events. The discharge pipe for this existing detention pond was within 50-feet of the pipe that discharged the stormwater runoff collected by the Williston Road drainage system.

The City’s infrastructure includes more than 6,268 catch basins and 177 miles of pipe. B E N E F I T S O F O U R S T O R M WAT E R U T I L I T Y Our utility provides many benefits to the City and its residents. Here are a few— • Maintenance, assessment, and improvement of the City’s drainage infrastructure including storm drains, pipes, and culverts. • Construction of stormwater treatment practices designed to clean stormwater runoff before it reaches our streams and Lake Champlain. These treatment practices include detention ponds, rain gardens, and stormwater treatment wetlands. • Conducts long-term, strategic planning to meet local, state, and federal environmental regulations.

6

Commerce Square Stormwater Pond The area surrounding Williston Road in South Burlington was developed prior to regulations requiring the treatment of stormwater runoff. As a result, the stormwater generated by the homes, businesses and roads in this area are collected by a closed pipe drainage system and discharged untreated to Potash Brook. Ultimately this untreated water flows through the future City Center.

THE SOLUTION: The City worked with the private property owner at Commerce Square and the Lake Champlain Watershed Environmental Assistance Program managed by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers to design a new stormwater treatment system in place of the existing detention pond. This new system combines the stormwater runoff collected from Williston Road with that of Commerce Square. This combined runoff will be directed to an expanded detention pond where it will receive treatment. The new system includes a hydrodynamic swirl separator designed to remove sediment and other pollutants from the collected stormwater runoff during smaller rain events. The outflow from the detention pond will flow into Potash Brook, moving through the new culvert being installed on Market Street and through City Center. This will allow restoration of the area’s ecosystem.

You may just see flowers and plants, but this gravel wetland in Farrell Park was constructed to collect and treat runoff from 1.5 acres, including a gravel parking lot. Previously, water flowed directly into the stream, untreated. Once water flows through this wetland, it enters the stream and is much cleaner. Water Quality sampling conducted in 2012 shows that the system removes 98% of the sediment and 88% of the phosphorous that flows into it.

A PEEK FROM OUR CITY CLERK

M

ost of us do our best to educate ourselves on the ballot items for each election. We make time to get to the polls and cast our votes. Then, we eagerly wait for the results on the evening news.

E L E C T I O N D AY All of the moving parts are put into motion and the election team begins before dawn. By 7 am, the doors are open at the polling locations and workers are checking in voters and explaining the ballot process. Every step is well-tuned and voter lines ebb and flow throughout the long day. In addition, • officials process absentee ballots;

But there is more to the process. A lot more. South Burlington City Clerk Donna Kinville gives us a glimpse of the work behind an election. “The process is finely detailed and timed, and begins months before election day. My team consists of staff, elected officials, and volunteers,” said Donna. The Board of Civil Authority (BCA) which oversees elections for the City is comprised of elected officials including City Council members, 15 elected Justices of Peace, and the City Clerk. “Together, we insure that the public voice is collected, tallied, and shared.” This team has been working more than usual with four elections in the past 12 months—local issues, a presidential election, and the school budget. Let’s take a look at the inner workings: PRE-ELECTION • Process voter applications. Confirming residency. Maintain registered voter list. • Post warnings, voter rights, and sample ballots in each of 4 polling districts.

• election workers run polling locations, with oversight from the BCA; • the City Clerk and the BCA monitor polling locations to meet election law requirements, including campaign sign placement and representatives outside the polls;

DID YOU KNOW? It costs more to use the tabulating machines than to hand-count, when a simple ballot is being used.

• Create and print ballots. • Schedule and set up secure polling locations. • Schedule and train election workers. • Manage absentee voting, including mobile voting. • Prepare the tally and summary sheets. • Test tabulating machines, if used.

8

More than 10,500 ballots were cast in the last presidential election. That’s more than 75% of the City’s registered voters.

• in each location, workers close the polls and tabulate results; • pack up each polling location and return all ballots, results, and materials to City Hall; • once all 4 districts have reported back to City Hall, the final report or results is prepared; and • election results are posted to the City’s website and reported to the Secretary of State, City Council, candidates, and the media. P O S T- E L E C T I O N After a short night’s sleep, the work continues back in the City Clerk’s office and usually lasts several days. In between the usual flow in the office and often with tax installment payment deadlines, the following final tasks are completed— • Staff verify numbers and provide an official report to the Secretary of State, including details on each item and/or candidate. Individual write in names must be listed and tallied. • All election material is stored in the City vault. • New voters, who registered on election day, are confirmed. • Each voter who participated is recorded.

e couldn’t do what we do without the wonderful support we get from our community partners and our invaluable sponsors.

These collaborations allow for us to offer enhancements to our program portfolio without having the additional cost burden placed on our participants. Sponsors allow businesses to invest in their community in a real and authentic way with identifiable and measurable results. As a Municipal Recreation and Parks Department, we rely heavily on our sponsors in a variety of ways. While traditional monetary contributions that off-set costs are always helpful to reduce or eliminate fees, we also encourage the concept of in-kind donations of time and talent, allowing us to infuse our programs with expertise

and provide additional enhancements. The combination of these allow us to build quality in our programming and events while at the same time keeping them financially accessible. This past year our community was honored to receive over $170,000 in comprehensive sponsorships to the Recreation and Parks Department. Without this support, we would not be able to offer many of the high quality and diverse programs and events that we do. We are sincerely grateful for our sponsors and for all of their support and look forward to deepening our connections as we continue to build and grow to meet the needs of this incredible community.

ADULT/OPEN GYM Health and Wellness Recreation and Parks Departments 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. POOR NUTRITION Increasing food costs limit accessibility to fresh produce, so we are working hard to infuse our programs with well rounded, delicious and nutritionally sound meals. Working with our partner South Burlington School District Nutritional Services, we are able to provide weekly meals to our senior population during their Wednesday gatherings, as well as daily meals to our summer campers at Jr. Rec and Lil’Tykes. Since June of 2016, we have served nearly 4,000 meals in our community programs and have a goal of 5,000 in this upcoming year. We look forward to our continued partnerships and supporting our community by providing daily nutrition options. HUNGER Our parks land is utilized to grow produce that is distributed to local food banks. At the Wheeler Homestead, the 10 raised garden beds yielded 1,160 pounds of fresh vegetables last year alone. These beds are planted, tended and harvested by the Burlington Garden Club and their “Growing Young Gardeners” program, which educates children ages 4-10 and their parents about the seasonal process of home gardening.

OUTDOOR PICKLEBALL FREE AGES: 18+, COED MAY – OCTOBER SZYMANKSI PARK WEDNESDAYS 9:00-11:00 AM WEDNESDAYS 6:00-8:00 PM

This year’s crop will be donated to our own South Burlington Community Shares program for needy families. In addition, agricultural land at the Underwood Property is being prepped for a fall pumpkin patch by our partners at Common Roots. Our Natural Resources Committee has identified the need for additional community garden space and will be focusing on identifying potential sites. We are proud of our agricultural roots here in South Burlington, and are calling on them to feed our neighbors in need. OBESITY One way to combat this epidemic is to infuse, at a young age, the importance and fun of eating right and being physically active. It was essential for us to sign on to the “Commitment to Health,” through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Working with our partners at a national level, our out-of-school camps adopted the HEPA (Healthy Eating and Physical Activity) standards to support healthy decisions for young children. Over the course of the 8 weeks of camp: • Children reported learning what MyPlate is, how to read a nutrition label, eating too much sugar is not good for the body/organs, milk is good for the body/organs, and drinking lots of water each day is important.

water and milk, and drinking fewer sugary beverages. • Parents reported eating new fruits and vegetables, trying new foods, cooking/plating according to MyPlate, and cooking more as a family. • Staff confirmed that many parents and children shared that their eating habits had changed throughout the programming. PHYSICAL INACTIVITY Our parks systems hosts over 26 miles of recreation paths, as well as 2.5 miles of hiking trails at Red Rocks Park and an additional 1.5 miles of hiking trails at Wheeler Nature Park. We continue to look for creative ways to provide connectivity for biking, walking, running, and hiking throughout our community. With athletic leagues and fitness options for every age, our programs offer something for everyone to jump in and be active. We work diligently to provide our community with a variety of both active and passive recreation opportunities. We look to continue to add to our open gym and drop-in programs as space permits. See below for current open gym offerings.

• Children’s behaviors changed to include eating new fruits, vegetables and whole grains, eating according to the MyPlate chart, drinking more

DOG PROGRAMS DOG PARKS IN DEVELOPMENT There is a new dog area at the entrance to Farrell Park and construction is underway for a Dog Park at Jaycee Park as well. This will allow residents from both corners of the city swift access to exercise their dogs off leash in a designated area. While fencing is in place, we will be adding more amenities in the future such as agility items and play structures to support pooches at play.

BEYOND BASICS DOG TRAINING 251006-B

AGES 18+ : NOVEMBER 3-DECEMBER 8 : DECISION DEADLINE OCTOBER19 FRIDAYS : 6:45-7:45PM : CITY HALL RESIDENTS $115 : NON-RESIDENTS $138 This class takes your training to the next level. You decide the next level because we teach to various levels of a given exercise, based on where your dog is at. The emphasis is on what you want to achieve with your dog within the exercises we teach, and giving you the instruction and proper exercises to achieve your goals.

DOG/PUPPY BASIC TRAINING AGES 18+

THE SCOOP ON POOP:

WHY YOU SHOULD PICK UP AFTER YOU DOG • Stormwater carries pet waste and other pollutants directly into waterways. • Animal waste adds nitrogen to the water. Excess nitrogen depletes the oxygen in water necessary for beneficial underwater grasses, wildlife, and fish. • Animal waste may contain harmful organisms such as Giardia, Salmonella, and E. coli that can be transmitted to humans and other animals by ingesting contaminated water. • Roundworms and hookworms deposited by infected animals can live in the soil for long periods of time and be transmitted to other animals and humans. • It’s the law! Many urban and suburban areas require you to pick up after your pet. Even if there was no restriction, cleaning up after your pet is always the right thing to do. • No one likes to step in pet waste and spread it into homes, cars, and businesses. • Scooping on a daily basis and applying lime will help prevent odors. • It’s easy to clean up by carrying plastic baggies and paper towels in your pocket. The baggies can be secured and thrown away in the garbage. • Your neighbors will appreciate your good manners. • It’s the right thing to do!
