Construction in Brant & Elgin lot for last leg of Elgin St promenade expected to be complete Dec. 1

Construction in the Brant & Elgin parking lot for the third leg of the Elgin St Promenade between Pearl Street and Brant Street is expected to be complete by Dec. 1.The lot will be reconfigured to contain a small parkette, per the sketch.

A final leg of the promenade is planned at a later date to connect the promenade to the Centennial Bike Path through the private parking lot between Martha and Pearl Streets. The first leg was completed in the north end of the city parking lot between Pearl and Elizabeth Streets earlier this year.

The project was funded by contributions from the City of Burlington, Federal government infrastructure funding and the Burlington Downtown Business Association, which contributed $50k.

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.
