Burlington [1] today is a product of unique geography, infrastructure, and regional settlement patterns. Equally important in shaping the Burlington community are the previous decisions made by municipal leaders and citizens. Together, these conditions have formulated where and when to invest in infrastructure that supports commerce and creates jobs, defines neighborhoods, educates the population, and harnesses and protects natural resources. Burlington developed slowly until Routes 128 and 3 made it easy to travel to and from Burlington to many other employment centers. This brought a development and population boom to the community. Since then, Burlington has changed dramatically; the sleepy, agricultural community that it had been since its founding is long gone, replaced by a bustling economic center with more employees than residents.
