2085 Pine St. – Sept. 23 2015 meeting notes and presentations

On Sept. 23, 2015, city planning staff hosted a public meeting at the Burlington Seniors’ Centre to share details about a development proposal by Roman Home Builders at 2085 Pine St. The proposal includes a 5-storey, 15 unit residential building, with 22 underground parking spaces and 2 spaces at grade. The existing heritage home would be retained and used as a common space for residents of the building.

City planning staff presented an information-only report to the Development & Infrastructure Committee on Nov. 9, 2015. A copy of the report and the webcast of the Nov. 9 meeting are available at

City planning staff will bring forward their recommendation report sometime in the new year. The report will contain a recommendation to either approve the project, deny the project or approve it with modifications. It will then be up to members of the Development & Infrastructure Committee (all Members of City Council) to discuss and vote on the recommendation. If you’re on my contact list for this project, I will notify you when the report has been prepared.

Questions or comments regarding this project can be directed to the planner on the file, Lisa Stern, by telephone at 905-335-7600, ext. 7427 or by email at A project page has been set up on the city’s website at where residents can view details of the application, along with the required studies submitted by the applicant.

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.
