Old Perkins School Could Be Apartment Complex

The Burlington City Council heard from Planning and Parks Director Eric Tysland last night about a plan to transform the old Perkins School into apartments.

Sunshine Builders has a purchase offer on the building and have asked to rezone it, which would restrict the number of units in the building to 32 and require off-street parking.

The planning commission is convinced it’s a worthy project, but not all the neighbors are. Tysland says some of the concerns have to do with parking, traffic, and low-income housing.
