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 strongly object to the provincial government telling our Burlington city hall that they MUST grow bold and extra high. There is growing bold responsibly and building a concrete jungle is not responsible planning for this city. I moved to Burlington in the early 80s because it was a quaint tree lined family community. I get it that we are growing. Can’t we modernize and keep the quaintness and history too?

What's your take?

Staff recommend 23 storeys at Brant/James
