City wins award for Alton Campus project

Parks and Recreation Ontario has honoured the city with an Award of Excellence in Design for the Alton Campus project, which includes the recently opened Haber Recreation Centre and the adjacent Norton Park.

The award recognizes a park, recreation and/or cultural facility that has demonstrated high standards of planning, design, community involvement, operation and maintenance, quality of aesthetics, usability, accessibility and versatility.

Congratulations and special thanks to Chris Glenn, Director of Parks and Recreation, and his entire team for their work.

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.
