Downtown Burlington sign being installed at Lakeshore/Torrance to welcome residents arriving from the East

A new sign is being installed at Lakeshore Rd and Torrance Ave to welcome people arriving to the downtown from the East. Called the “eastern gateway sign” it is expected to be installed this winter.

There is already a similar northern gateway sign at the corner of Victoria/Brant behind the Tim Horton’s.

These signs have been created in partnership by the Burlington Downtown Business Association and the City of Burlington.

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.
