Rescheduled: Meeting on Berkeley variances, July 14

The Berkeley renderingFurther to my previous two letters mailed to you in May, I have now had the opportunity to reschedule the neighbourhood meeting to hear about minor variances required for The Berkeley development project that encompasses the block of land at Caroline, John, Maria and Elizabeth streets. City Council approved the project in 2010.

Meeting details:

Date:  Thursday, July 14, 2016
Time:  7 p.m.
Location:  City Hall, 2nd Floor, Room 247, 426 Brant Street

The development includes a 17-storey residential condominium with rooftop amenity area facing Maria Street, an 8-storey medical office facing Caroline Street and a 6-storey above ground parking structure in between.

Carriage Gate Homes is proceeding with the site plan approval process and it will be necessary to seek some minor variances through the Committee of Adjustment. Residents are invited to learn about the minor variances, ask questions and provide comments at the neighbourhood meeting.

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.
