As Official Plan heads toward approval, open houses planned for Nov. 16, 20

A statutory Public Meeting under the Planning Act has been scheduled on November 30, 2017 at the Planning and Development Committee meeting to release the proposed new Official Plan for community and Council consideration.

Notice of the Public Meeting and the proposed new Official Plan will be issued by November 10.

Following the community feedback received through the statutory meeting process, staff will bring forward a report recommending adoption of the proposed new Official Plan to a subsequent Committee/Council meeting scheduled for January 2018.

As part of the statutory meeting process, a series of three open houses have been scheduled:

  • Thursday November 16, 6:30pm-8:30 pm, Art Gallery of Burlington;
  • Monday November 20 at 1:00pm-3:00pm, City Hall;
  • Monday November 20 at 6:30pm-8:30 pm, Haber Community Centre.

You can also attend the Nov. 30 Planning and Development Committee meeting as a delegation to provide input to staff and council about the new plan.

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.
