Burlington Comprehensive Master Plan

Burlington, Massachusetts

The Town of Burlington is a suburban community of 25,000 residents that is also home to regional, national, and international companies that bring nearly 50,000 employees to Burlington each day. Harriman is facilitating a public process and completing the overall process associated with developing a Comprehensive Master Plan.

Burlington is known as a regional shopping destination and regional employment center; additionally, Burlington attracts residents with its outstanding municipal programming, good schools, and neighborhood development. The strong commercial tax base has allowed the Town to provide high quality public services. Many of these services are provided without registration or other fees. Much of the conversation has centered on balancing these two Burlingtons to promote sustainable economic development, allow for redevelopment, and lessen traffic impacts while protecting existing residential neighborhoods and ensuring Burlington remains an attractive place for the office and retail markets.
