Need more mainstream restaurants and stores. We need a TARGET! Apart from needing more shopping and food places, the roads need to be expanded. Chittendecounty is getting to be a drag because the town cannot accommodate the number of people moving here. We also need updated affordable housing in the worst way.

SBHS is a very accepting high school. It may sound cliché but there really is something for everybody! Because a group of new students come from the islands after middle school, there's always an influx of new kids; everyone is very friendly and social and welcoming.
Overall, South Burlington is a great town and it is an amazing place to live, work, and raise children. While it's far from perfect, it has been a good home for the past 18 yeas and I will always be a Vermonter at heart because of my positive experiences in South Burlington!
