Residents hear updated plans for 2085 Pine

2085 pineApproximately 20 residents attend a public meeting April 29 to provide feedback on a revised proposal for 2085 Pine Street. The following key issues were discussed:

Heritage Home – the addition made to the existing home after 1974 will be removed, shed removed, kitchen will stay

Parking – 24 parking spaces proposed, visitor parking is required and needs to be preserved and signed as such

Building – 5 floors total, 15 units which includes one unit on the 5th floor

As proposed, the plan would require a rezoning. A comparison between existing zoning and the proposed development is below:

There was positive feedback from residents about the modifications, the overall design and the preservation of the heritage building. The builder has not yet submitted a formal application to the city, preferring to meet instead with residents in advance. This is the third public meeting on this project, having gone through several revisions as a result of resident input.

My Take:

The developer has made some improvements to the project after hearing from residents. I thank them for meeting with the community in advance of submitting an application and modifying the project based on input. I still have some questions about the massing and density, as well as the garage which will partially emerge above grade. I will be looking to staff’s review to address these issues  once a formal application is filed.

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.
