Our guest Melinda Moulton is CEO of Main St. Landing, a development company that has been a pioneer on the Burlington, VT waterfront for more than 30 years.

Along with her Co-founder Lisa Steele, Melinda was at he forefront of re-defining the city’s relationship to its waterfront, at the time a decaying port that in prior centuries played a major role in economics, war, transportation and the evolution of the culture of the Northeast as Lake Champlain was a major hub of activity during pre and post colonial America.
