We live in a great city and must take care to keep what is great as we grow and change. We must protect what residents value and what makes them want to live here in the first place. We do that when City Hall works with residents, putting the needs of residents first.

Description

Burlington is a great city and must take care to keep what is great. We do that when City Hall works with residents, putting the needs of residents first.

Written by Marianne Meed Ward

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.
