Burlington Free Press Letter to the Editor: We need Champlain College!

By Ernie Pomerleau

The Free Press editorial (April 6) is a very accurate assessment of the Champlain College project.

Boston Globe Highlights BTV As New England Locavore Capital

Boston Globe - Denizens of this city’s hippie past still wander the local food co-op and cheerful pedestrian mall, Church Street Marketplace, but they are relegated now to the category of local color. Burlington’s new poster children are its chefs, bartenders, and brewers.

Despite its short growing season, the Green Mountain State has attracted top-flight chefs eager for a slower pace.

Deconstructing the Queen City Development Boom - 7 Days

Seven Days - Walk the two-block stretch of St. Paul Street between Main and Maple, and you'll catch sight of three large buildings sheathed in Tyvek: a hotel, a condo complex and a youth center. If it wins on appeal, a six-story Champlain College dorm will occupy most of one of those blocks. At least four other major developments are under construction in the city of Burlington, with another 10 on the horizon.
