BURLINGTON, Vt. - Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger  announced his support for a Champlain College housing project Thursday.

The college wants to buy this lot on Saint Paul Street from the city.  It's currently vacant.

Mayor Weinberger sent a letter to the development review board asking it to approve the sale.

He says it will make money for the city and help with the currently housing shortage.
