A group of residents living in the downtown core area of Burlington have formed a residents association to provide a citizens voice on development and intensification.
The core area is defined by Victoria Avenue at the north end to Lakeshore Road in the south and the west edge of Locust Street to the eastern Martha Street border.
According to the group’s website, the Core Residents “is a group of people that have come to believe that the issues of rapid intensification, massive building growth and its associated side effects are affecting the quality of our lives and the way we live and relate to our area….Many people are saddened by recent decisions by the city to allow massive buildings despite the input from residents and decisions of previous councils to limit growth and building heights. Many are feeling squeezed by builds that will shade their streets, obstruct their views, constrict flexible affordable business and cultural spaces and forever alter the patterns of life downtown….We believe the pattern of proposed overbuilding will create a permanent negative legacy.”
