Ready for 100% Energy-transition Conversation 2018/11 updates

We’ve made some adjustments to our November 26 meeting about plans to develop a roadmap for taking Burlington to net zero energy and opportunities for community engagement in the roadmapping. Darren Springer has been asked to appear at the City Council meeting that evening. Jen Green, Burlington’s sustainability officer, will join us, instead. Here are the details:

  • Getting to Net-zero Energy: Developing a roadmap for Burlington

  • Monday, November 26, 7:10-8:30 pm

  • Center of Recreation and Education (CORE), O.N.E. Community Center, 20 Allen Street, Burlington

  • Please RSVP and register dessert preference at

  • For more information about this Conversation, including parking, and changes in schedule or location visit

A variety of topics have been suggested at past meetings. We want to know which appeal to you and what else you’d like. We’ve created a survey to find out. We’d really appreciate your filling it out. It’s here.


Meanwhile, on November 29, the Burlington 2030 District and Vermont Green Building Network are holding a panel discussion and networking reception (with appetizers and cash bar).


  • The future of transportation in the City of Burlington: Reducing emissions and advancing a healthy, safe and equitable transportation system

  • Thursday, November 29, 5:30 to 7:30pm

  • VEIC, Town Center Room, 129 Lakeside Ave, Burlington

  • Free for VGBN and Burlington 2030 District members. $10 for non-members.


I hope to see you at these events.

Thanks for helping create a just, inclusive and renewable energy future for Burlington.,
