Draft concept of the promenade in Lot #1

Residents are invited to view plans for the Elgin Promenade, a 4.5 to 5 metre wide multi-use path that will link the Centennial Bike Path on Martha Street west to Elgin Street.

Open House details:

Date: Tuesday, May 24, 2016
Time: 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Burlington City Hall, 426 Brant St., 3rd Floor, Rooms 305/307

The first phase of the project, which will begin in Sept. 2016, will be the stretch between Elizabeth and Pearl Streets (City Parking Lot #1) north of Village Square. The lot is scheduled to be resurfaced this year and the promenade work will be done in conjunction with the resurfacing project. This phase is funded by contributions from the Canada 150 Community Improvement Program, the Burlington Downtown Business Association (BDBA) and the City’s 2016 Capital Budget.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
