South Burlington airport task force recommends against rezoning
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - South Burlington’s airport task force voted Thursday to recommend against rezoning parts of the city to allow for expansion at the airport.
The vote denies the Burlington International Airport’s request to rezone the property near Airport Parkway and Kirby Road Extension. Now, the recommendation will go to the planning commission.
There were concerns the task force’s recommendation would halt Beta Technologies’ expansion at the airport, but the Development Review Board on Tuesday approved a new plan from the electric plane company to get around parking issues with the city. The new plan allows Beta to bus employees in from an offsite lot instead of putting a parking lot in front of the new building.
