2267 Lakeshore sold; proposal remains for three single family homes

Residents may be aware that the vacant property at 2267 Lakeshore Road has been sold. This property had a single family home (now demolished) and was the subject of a rezoning application to permit three single family homes, approved by council in April 2015.

No changes have been proposed by the new owner, and the city’s current understanding is that the new owner will simply carry on from where the previous owner left off. The new owner is clearing conditions of Draft Approval in order to obtain Final Approval and permits.

My Take: I voted in favour of the three homes, reduced from the initial five-home proposal, along with other improvements based on resident input. I will keep an eye on this project and alert residents of any significant changes to the approved plans. If a variance or rezoning is requested, that automatically triggers public notice and a sign would be posted on the property. Variances are considered by the Committee of Adjustment; Rezoning comes to City Council for a decision.

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.
