Lawsuit filed to stop redevelopment of City Hall Park in Burlington

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Several Burlington residents are filing a lawsuit to stop the redevelopment of City Hall Park.

In a statement, the group says the City Council is going "rogue" and is rushing the project.

They were part of a petition to put an article on the Town Meeting Day ballot urging the City Council to cancel the plan. But the council refused to put the question on the ballot.

The group says they feel that decision has violated the Burlington Charter and asks that the court revisit the decision.
