Running for City Council


Meaghan Emery

Meaghan Emery

After three terms on City Council (2008-2010, 2010-2012, 2014-2016), I am eager to return to see projects through to fruition: City Center development, including Dumont Park, a new Library/municipal complex, and public-private projects; Chamberlin Neighborhood planning; open space and natural area management planning and visioning (for Red Rocks, Wheeler, and Underwood respectively); and continued mixed-use transportation corridor studies and improvements.

My announcement appears on p.8 in the January 21, 2016 edition of The Other Paper.

Please take a look at my Platform to see my list of priorities and guiding principles–they have stayed the same since I first ran for the Council in 2008.

You can learn more about me and see a list of my initiatives and accomplishments under Bio. I delve more deeply into my guiding principles and view of the City’s social priorities under Affordability.

I have had the honor of serving you for six years, and I look forward to continuing in this role. Thank you for your support.

What is TIF?

South Burlington’s City Center was approved as a TIF district by the State in 2013. This special tax district designation will allow taxes collected on City Center properties to be redirected toward the continued development of City Center–a self-perpetuating funding mechanism that has had great success elsewhere in the State and in the nation.
The VT Agency of Commerce & Community Development has a very useful website for those interested:
