Development proposed for 2267 Lakeshore Road; public meeting April 29

The city has received an application for a development proposal for 2267 Lakeshore Road (north side of the street, just east of Lakeshore Public School) for five single detached dwellings on a shared condo road. Currently, a single family home sits on the site.

The application would require a rezoning of the site from R3.2 to R5 to facilitate the homes and the condo road.

A public meeting has been planned for April 29, 7pm, at the Burlington Senior’s Centre, 2285 New St. Planning staff are hosting the meeting, and will provide an overview of the proposal and take comments and questions from residents. I will attend to hear your input and questions.

As more information becomes available, it will be posted here. The applicant has submitted a series of studies in support of the project, including:

  • Planning Justification Report
  • Conceptual Condominium Plan (site plan)
  • Storm Water Management Report
  • Serving Reports
  • Tree Inventory & Preservation  Study (Arborist Assessment)
  • Noise Study
  • Environmental Screening Checklist
  • Height Survey
  • Letter from Halton District School Board regarding tree removal
  • Transportation Brief

These studies have now been be posted online, at the link above. You can also review these studies in person by visiting the planning counter, second floor of City Hall, or by making an appointment with the city planner assigned to review the application, Rebecca Tannahill:

More information will follow as I receive it.

My Take: I have not had an opportunity to review the file with our city planner yet, or discuss the implications around the specific rezoning request, and want to hear from residents at the public meeting before taking a position. Generally, I support projects that respect the existing Official Plan and Zoning, with only minor modifications that are required to help advance city and regional policy goals for housing.

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. Got an idea or comment you want to share privately? Please, get in touch:
