Statutory Public Meeting:

Development & Infrastructure Committee: Oct. 13, 6:30 p.m.

Council will receive a staff information report at the D&I meeting on Tues., Oct. 13 related to the proposal by Starlight Investments to redevelop their property at 2051-2085 Prospect St.

A summary of the proposed redevelopment is available in the staff report (links below) and in an earlier article on wards2news.ca that provides a summary of the neighbourhood meeting June 25 that I hosted to provide residents information on this redevelopment.

There have been some changes to the project since the neighbourhood meeting. I am working with Starlight Investments to schedule an additional neighbourhood meeting, following the formal statutory public meeting on Oct. 13. Watch for details of that neighbourhood meeting here, or email your contact information to my assistant who will add you to the notification list: Georgie.Gartside@burlington.ca

Staff have not yet made a recommendation regarding the redevelopment. Following input from residents and council at the Statutory Public Meeting, staff will prepare a recommendation report that recommends one of: approve; approve with modifications; refuse. That report will come back to a future D&I meeting and residents can attend and speak. Watch for details of that date in my newsletter and on the webpage, or email your contact information to my assistant to be included in the notification list.

Register to speak at the meeting:

As the Oct. 13 meeting is a statutory public meeting, residents do not have to register to speak at the meeting. However, those that do register in advance are called up first. Register online at: Register as a delegation

 

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?
