Written by Marianne Meed Ward

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.

  1. Just spent about 45 minutes scanning – not reading in its entirety – the public input summaries on the Official Plan. It’s an illuminating document, if you want to know the mindset of developers in particular – but I wanted to say that anyone grumbling about overpaid politicians should look at this to get an inkling of the massive responsibility they face in preparing for these meetings and decisions. This daunting reading is just a fraction of what they must absorb every month. Hats off to you all.

What's your take?
