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. Thanks for the head’s up to go and look at the plans. Unfortunately, a few of us saw the plans for the house on Smith. An ultra modern monstrosity, original only in it’s ugliness and complete unsuitability for the street and neighbourhood. Astonishing that someone who owns a business downtown and currently lives on Seneca has such little regard for the charms of the area or the feelings of neighbours. It is right next door to a century farmhouse! Crammed onto a lot that is only 39′ wide.

    It also has come to my attention that in two months’ time, residents in Burlington will no longer be able to go and look at plans in this way. Apparently Burlington City Council has changed the rules going forward and developers will be able to keep their plans a secret if there are no variances. Marianne, I would be interested to hear your thoughts on that.

    Developers are ruining our beautiful downtown.

    • It is! A hideous ultra modern square box. An uninspired design you could pull off the internet in 2 seconds. Completely unsuitable for the area, but the developers don’t care and nor apparently does the homeowner.

What's your take?
