City launches “askgrowbold” to take questions provide answers on new Official Plan

City of Burlington – Got questions about the city’s new Official Plan, which shapes how and where the population grows over the next 20 years?

Residents have asked: Why does Burlington have to grow at all? How will younger families afford to live in the city? Won’t there be traffic gridlock if more people move to Burlington?

The city has created Ask Grow Bold to provide answers to questions like these and more. Read more or ask a question of your own here: www.burlington.ca/growbold.

The plan is scheduled to come back to Burlington City Council for approval in early 2018.
