Survey: Free Parking in December – keep or scrap?

The Burlington Downtown Business Association, Downtown Parking Committee, and myself as Ward Councillor are reviewing the Free Parking program weekdays for the month of December. (No changes are proposed for free parking Sat/Sun/Holidays and after 6pm to 9am the rest of the year).

The review is a result of concerns from some businesses and customers that it is harder to find parking weekdays during Free P in December. Concerns have also been raised that the program is being abused by permit holders who would normally park further away in lots, but are now taking up prime spots on the street and in lots close to Brant.

Please take the following survey to share your thoughts on keeping, scrapping or modifying the program: Free P in December

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.
