2085 Pine St. – Sept. 23 2015 meeting notes and presentations

On Sept. 23, 2015, city planning staff hosted a public meeting at the Burlington Seniors’ Centre to share details about a development proposal by Roman Home Builders at 2085 Pine St. The proposal includes a 5-storey, 15 unit residential building, with 22 underground parking spaces and 2 spaces at grade. The existing heritage home would be retained and used as a common space for residents of the building.

City planning staff presented an information-only report to the Development & Infrastructure Committee on Nov. 9, 2015. A copy of the report and the webcast of the Nov. 9 meeting are available at www.burlington.ca/agendasandminutes.

City planning staff will bring forward their recommendation report sometime in the new year. The report will contain a recommendation to either approve the project, deny the project or approve it with modifications. It will then be up to members of the Development & Infrastructure Committee (all Members of City Council) to discuss and vote on the recommendation. If you’re on my contact list for this project, I will notify you when the report has been prepared.

Questions or comments regarding this project can be directed to the planner on the file, Lisa Stern, by telephone at 905-335-7600, ext. 7427 or by email at lisa.stern@burlington.ca. A project page has been set up on the city’s website at www.burlington.ca/2085pinestreet where residents can view details of the application, along with the required studies submitted by the applicant.

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?
