2 storey (medical) office with ground floor retail. Meets zoning, only site plan application required. Staff continue to review the application and the applicant will be required to complete a traffic study.

The revised development proposal consists of a rear and second-storey additions to the initially proposed building. The proposed building would have a total gross floor area of 3,210 sq. feet (297.8 sq. m), include a pharmacy at the ground level and medical clinic above (on the second floor). A total of 8 surface parking spaces are proposed at the rear of the building. The exterior cladding is primarily glazing with a combination of stone and metal panelling as accenting materials. The revised elevations also support a wrapped first-storey canopy (consisting of wood panelling).

The demolition of the homes on these sites may or may not have taken place.

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.

  1. I maybe shouldn’t comment on the demolitions given I haven’t gone to see the addresses, but…I suspect they are so bigger homes might be built – which saddens me greatly. I would love to see Burlington having the guts to say no to demolishing existing homes that have served families for generations. Not everything should be based on how much money one has?

What's your take?
