Anybody claiming that building the Champlain Parkway won't result in more traffic needs to look at years of evidence around the concept of induced demand. If you build more roads, you get more traffic. 100% of the time, every time. #BTV https://t.co/r5RiEjdOJi

The default shouldn't be to demand people to ask for exceptions. You tell THEM why they MUST risk their lives by returning to campus, @uvmvermont.

This thunderstorm is literally having a fight with the sun directly over my house. To the left, I see blue sky. To the right, the rain we need.
The relentless, searing sun appears to be winning. #btv

I wasn't aware of the term "Russel's conjugation," but it's an incredibly apt idea for describing so much of our national dialogue.

- Transportation and Parking Improvement Request
I do not know at this point what Burlington agency is in charge of patrroling traffic and speeding, but if something is not done about the excessive speeding and massive trucks on Home Ave. between Shelburne Rd. and Pine St. the citizenry whose quality of life and safety is impacted in a negative way, are going to have to take it upon thermselves to do something about it.
If another speeding car almost hits my kids, if another tractor trailer almost runs down someone trying to cross the street in a wheelchair, if another huge truck almost slams into the back of our car when pulling into our driveway it will be the last straw. We realize that no one will do anything about it until someone is badly injured, but WE CARE about the safety of our neighbors and families. At some point it becomes an issue of self preservation.
The Champlain Parkway seems to be a mythological promise that is never going to happen, yet is continuously held up as the solution to this long known and worsening problem. Something has to be done in the "interim." We are exhausted by fantastical promises. Please protect our neighborhood streets. Home Ave. should not be used as an extension of I-89.

- Sidewalk Repair
For years I’ve complained about my sidewalks that are buckled on my street Janet circle (I’ve fallen three times over the years drawing blood) And also my driveway apron which was put down and never finished when they paved my road. You came back and fixed my next store neighbors but never addressed my bang up job that’s now crumbling and falling apart.
That has caused me to catch the crack and drop my motorcycle twice..
I want my stuff fixed.
Also Faith street is a mess in front of 15 but probably the whole road like mine.
I was walking my dog there last year and a man was jogging and tripped and face planted and I had to help him get to the hospital. These of all been written up repeatedly but the city ignores my request. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter, jill Saint Thomas Benoit
