Developer Still Pitches New Burlington Center

Proposed Library Lane Village

The five-acre property in the central business district of Burlington next to the Library is still proposed to be the new Burlington center.

The proposal was initially offered in May of 2017.

Proposed Library Lane Village

The property is on Rt 4 at the intersection of George Washington Turnpike and near Rt. 69 connection.

Burlington’s plan of development calls for the property to be the retail and commercial center of town.

The aptly named Library Lane has the town’s Library, little league field, church and multiple other businesses.

The town also owns an additional five acres for future municipal development.

The developer — Johnnycake Properties — plans to include public green spaces for farmers markets, town events and other community events.

The proposal calls for on and off-street parking, outdoor covered dining, and wide sidewalks buffered by parallel parking.

“Everything just kind of seemed like a blur that day,” Becky Savage said. “Your mind is not really meant to process something that extreme.” The day Savage is describing is June 14, 2015.

The next morning, as Savage was picking up laundry in Jack’s room, […]
