28-storey building proposed for Martha/Lakeshore

I do not support this project as it goes well beyond the current Official Plan for this site of 4-8 storeys maximum, and as a result includes a number of deficiencies. These include including insufficient parking, poor design with a wall of parking garage at the second floor and above, significant sun shadowing of area residents, insufficient hydro and challenges with storm water management.

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.
