The City of Burlington will be refreshing the area surrounding City Hall. This includes Civic Square, City Hall’s front entrance and facade and the streetscapes of Brant Street and Elgin Street in the immediate area.

Help us turn the area into a vibrant, exciting and accessible space where people can connect in the downtown core.

Some of the intended final design objectives for the refresh are:

  • Enhancing community connections - Focus on walkability and amenities for pedestrians
  • Preserving and enhancing nature
  • Developing community identity - Bring together arts and culture through festivals, events and ceremonies
  • Creating a welcoming, accessible and comfortable public space – A public space that is vibrant, safe and comfortable for all
