Share your input

Press release – The City of Burlington has entered into a partnership with the City of Hamilton to create the Bay Area Climate Change office under Mohawk’s Centre for Climate Change Management. We are looking for feedback on climate change priorities between the two communities through a survey.

You can participate and learn more here.

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.
