Elgin Promenade Open House May 24

Elgin Promenade Draft March 2 2016
Draft concept of the promenade in Lot #1

Residents are invited to view plans for the Elgin Promenade, a 4.5 to 5 metre wide multi-use path that will link the Centennial Bike Path on Martha Street west to Elgin Street.

Open House details:

Date: Tuesday, May 24, 2016
Time: 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Burlington City Hall, 426 Brant St., 3rd Floor, Rooms 305/307

The first phase of the project, which will begin in Sept. 2016, will be the stretch between Elizabeth and Pearl Streets (City Parking Lot #1) north of Village Square. The lot is scheduled to be resurfaced this year and the promenade work will be done in conjunction with the resurfacing project. This phase is funded by contributions from the Canada 150 Community Improvement Program, the Burlington Downtown Business Association (BDBA) and the City’s 2016 Capital Budget.

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.
