Council will receive a staff information report at the D&I meeting on Tues., Oct. 13 related to the proposal by Starlight Investments to redevelop their property at 2051-2085 Prospect St.

A summary of the proposed redevelopment is available in the staff report (links below) and in an earlier article on that provides a summary of the neighbourhood meeting June 25 that I hosted to provide residents information on this redevelopment.

There have been some changes to the project since the neighbourhood meeting. I am working with Starlight Investments to schedule an additional neighbourhood meeting, following the formal statutory public meeting on Oct. 13. Watch for details of that neighbourhood meeting here, or email your contact information to my assistant who will add you to the notification list:

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.
