Opponents of Burlington City Hall Park continue legal action

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Opponents of the City Hall Park redevelopment project are pushing in court to shut down construction.

The group is opposed to the city cutting down trees for the redevelopment project and claim there's an expired construction permit.

Plaintiffs tried to stop the renovation with a preliminary injunction, but the court denied it.

They say the city's construction permits expired March 22.

The city moved to dismiss the claim, but the judge said the case needed to continue. In a new motion, opponents say the city doesn't have a valid zoning permit and say the city should not start work before next Monday.
