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. Another example of the anti car culture at city hall?

    And by the way before taking out parking spaces to plant new trees, why doesn’t the city first look to do something about all the dead ones standing on Pearl Street? Also it seems that when the city cuts down a dead tree on our sidewalk boulevards, new ones are not replanted. Why? Could it be that these are the wrong locations to plant trees?

What's your take?
