In November 1990, voters approved an Urban Renewal Plan for the waterfront. The plan stated that no less than half the land would be used for conservation purposes. Zoning requires a 100-foot setback and that 25 percent of waterfront housing be affordable. About 20 acres of the land is governed by the Public Trust Doctrine, which means the land must be used for public purposes approved by the Legislature. Zoning for the filled lands, located closest to the lake, limits development to 25 percent more restrictive than the grant.

But the council could change that requirement, Monte said. The Urban Renewal Plan sought to spare the land from Death Notices MARIE THERESA GARCEAU RICHMOND Marie Theresa Garceau, 58, of Cemetery Road died Friday, Feb. 21, 1992, in the Medical Center Hospital of Vermont following a short illness.

She was a five-year employee of the Fanny Allen housekeeping department prior to a 14-year career with IBM, from where she recently took early retirement. She is survived by her beloved husband, Maurice of Richmond; a sister, Sister Alice Durand, RHSJ, of the Fanny Allen Community in Colchester; many sisters-in-law; brothers-in-law; aunts; uncles; nieces; nephews; cousins; and 1 i dense commercial development. It requires that future generations decide how to use the land.

"The people of Burlington have, time after time, expressed their vision for the waterfront," Clavelle said. "It's a vision which does include commercial development. But also it includes significant open space and public access." Monte said critics should recognize that several factors make it difficult to develop the land. The land would need costly utility improvements and environmental cleanup. And it would be difficult to develop 10.26 acres on a steep hill, he said.

Clavelle said the grant would fulfill the aim of not relying on taxpayers to shoulder the financial burden. Voters last year approved a $1 million bond for the waterfront purchase. and Funerals and neighbors of Burlington and Thompson's Point; and three cousins, Dorothy O. Naylor of Calais, Judy O.
