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. Outdoor exercise equipment is in many communities around the world. What are you waiting for Burlington? Let’s not study this to death. If Ferragudo, Portugal population 2,000 can have this in place, then why can’t we?

  2. I saw outdoor exercise equipment set up in a park in Ireland this spring and people of all ages were using it, not just seniors, including myself. There was a sign beside each piece of equipment showing how to use it correctly. It was fun and I met some very nice people. I would love to have this here!

  3. A great idea. Not only for seniors but all of us who are going to one day become seniors. Hamilton has equipment like this at a park on Barton near Sanford. An investment in physical activity and increased mobility has a substantial payback in the long run.

What's your take?
