Resident forms Better Streets Burlington to advocate for walking, cycling, transit

A Burlington resident has started a Facebook page to invite residents to join the quest for better streets for walking, cycling and transit.

The group describes itself as follows:

“We are a group of local residents who support better streets for walking, cycling, and transit. We believe our streets should be safe for everyone from children to seniors. We advocate for investments in better infrastructure for walking and cycling and funding for better public transit service.”

You can find the page here: Better Streets Burlington

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.

    • I tend to agree……trouble is we are of a “car” generation, and that’s not going to change any time soon. That being said, I do use my bike on bike paths for shopping in my neighborhood ….when weather permits and certainly not in winter.

What's your take?
