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. Hi Marianne: I read all the remarks on the temporary New St. Lane change (bicycle lanes, turning lane) coming to the conclusion that the majority of comments are negative. I want to say that I drive a car regularly north and south on Pine Cove via New Street to Cumberland to access the stores on Fairview. stores. The New Street’s painted line changes have been a POSITIVE change for the better.. They allow me as a driver to reduce the wait time crossing New Street. Thank you City of Burlington!

What's your take?
