OMB hearing on Martha/Lakeshore 26-storey development postponed

Participant statements March 6

The Ontario Municipal Board hearing on the proposed 26-storey building at the foot of Martha and Lakeshore has been postponed due to illness. The board will reconvene Monday March 6, 10am at City Hall, Rm 247, to hear statements from citizen participants (residents and community groups). The balance of the hearing will be rescheduled to a later date.

The original hearing was scheduled for two weeks; one-week of testimony has already been heard.

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.
