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 think that it’s time to start thinking about mobility hubs that are needed in other parts of the city, parts that have built up despite not being focused on as “growth opportunities”. I feel that the area in and around the intersection of Appleby and Dundas is one of these areas. It’s got tons of traffic, because of the tons of retail that keeps getting built there, but it’s easily the most pedestrian-unfriendly part of the city. Throughout all that space of parking lagoons and extra-wide roadways for cars, very little focus is given to pedestrians, cyclist, and transit. Surely, somewhere in all that space, there could be room for a small transit hub, and more sidewalks.

What's your take?
