Organization's Approach to Diversity, Equity, Belonging, & Inclusion

The City of South Burlington adopted a Declaration of Inclusion in 2022 reinforcing the message that we are a safe and welcoming community for all and condemn all discrimination in all its forms, committing to fair and equal treatment of everyone in our community and strive to ensure all our actions, policies, and operating procedures reflect this commitment.
The City is completing an Equity in Planning Outreach toolkit by the end of 2024. The City received a grant from the State of Vermont build this toolkit for thoughtful, strategic, and meaningful community engagement in city planning and other community participation initiatives and opportunities.
Adopted a Rental Registry Ordinance (this year). The registry for rental housing provides for regular inspection to ensure that rental properties are maintained to a standard that ensures the health and safety of all residents in rental properties.
The City has contracted with the Vermont Professionals of Color to ensure that new BIPOC employees receive a “concierge” style welcome and support when transitioning from out-of-state. The City is committed to offering jobs to all qualified candidates and ensuring that all new hires are able to make a successful move to Vermont.
The City is a member of the IDEAL Vermont Cohort.
In addition, various departments have undertaken sustained year over year efforts to transform service delivery so that it is provided more equitably and inclusively.
