Zoning Approved For Arts Venue At Burton Snowboard Warehouse

A Vermont city has approved a zoning change so a local warehouse can be used as a performing arts venue.
Burton Snowboards owns the warehouse. The concert venue is part of a plan for the company's campus that includes a skate park, restaurant and brewery.

A South Burlington music venue called Higher Ground has applied to relocate to the warehouse.

Some nearby residents say a music venue could disrupt the neighborhood with noise, traffic and rowdy concertgoers.

The city councilors of neighboring South Burlington say they are worried about safety and that drunk concert attendees might go cliff jumping in Red Rocks Park across the street.

The Burlington City Council approved the zoning change Monday.

The Development Review Board will do a final analysis on the zoning discussion. South Burlington City Council leaders say they plan to participate.
