My Take: The original proposal represented overdevelopment of the site. I will be reviewing the revised plans in detail and consulting with residents and staff in assessing the revised plans.

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 lived adjacent to this property on Silwell Ct for 28 years. While the developer has compromised. The number of units is still huge for the size of the property. The Mini Park will be smaller than the EMS Station abutting the property. Tiny townhomes on narrow streets will not be a nice place to live, but may be the way of the future given current housing prices. I’m glad I moved.

What's your take?
