You asked: What is happening with the proposed 26-storey development at Martha/Lakeshore?

No decisions have been made on this application. Staff and council did not support the proposal and it was appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board. The board held hearings in February and July and has not yet released its decision in the matter.

As soon as the decision is released by the board, I will let residents know.

For background on this proposal, in the search tab (top right) search for articles by entering “Martha” or follow this link: Martha/Lakeshore

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
