Arms Forest Survey

Trail Concepts Survey

Thanks to everyone who joined us at the Miller Center for the public workshop on October 17th! For those of you that couldn’t join us, we’ve put together an online survey that presents the trail master plan concepts we’ve developed for you to give us your feedback.

We’ll keep the survey open through November 21st (11/21), so please share with anyone you know that might be interested in the trail network at Arms Forest.

Thanks again to all our workshop participants at the 10/17 meeting!

Early Outreach

October 25, 2018

One year ago, a coalition was formed to protect the integrity of the ecology at Arms Forest and Rock Point. Members of the Rock Point and Arms Forest Coalition include: Burlington Parks Recreation and Waterfront, Burlington Conservation Board, Killarney Drive Inc., Fellowship of the Wheel, The Parks Foundation of Burlington, John and Jane Ewing, The Elks Club of Burlington, North Avenue Alliance Church, The Arms Family, The Lake Champlain Land Trust, The Episcopal Diocese, and Burlington Parks Recreation and Waterfront Commission.

The coalition is in the process of gathering scoping information about Arms Forest. This survey is one of the steps in this process. Other things underway in this scoping process are: a comprehensive Ecological Assessment, gathering of use data using trail counters, and a community meeting tentatively scheduled for later this fall.  All of the information gathered through these various methods will be used to inform trail and way finding design and implementation.  Our overall objective of this process is to increase protection of the valuable ecological attributes of the Arms Forest.
