Staff recommend not proceeding the Mount Nemo Heritage Conservation District

Mount Nemo PlateauPlanning staff are recommending that the city not proceed with the Mount Nemo Plateau Heritage Conservation District Study. Residents are invited to learn more at the Ward 3 Spring meeting:

Date: Monday, May 2

Time: 7-8 pm

Place: Conservation Halton Auditorium, 2596 Britannia Road

At this meeting staff will :

  • Describe the chronology of events of the project
  • Summary community responses received
  • Outline future opportunities to be involved in rural initiatives, including the city’s Official Plan Review

Despite this change, staff remain committed to protecting the special character of rural Burlington.

While the City may revisit conducting a heritage study of Mount Nemo in the future, it is not proceeding with the Heritage Conservation District Study at this time.  The decision to not proceed with the Study relates to redirecting resources to address priorities emerging from the Strategic Plan.

A letter will be mailed out April 11 to the rural area, map here: Map of Study Area

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?
