August 27 - Two More Documents Added

Here are two more documents on the Downtown. These will be added to staff report PL-16-20 as appendices. This report will be presented to the Community Planning, Regulation, and Mobility Committee on Wednesday, Sept. 30.

At this time, the City is sharing a first draft of the Placemaking and Urban Design Guidelines for your reference. This is to help you and Council better understand how Official Plan policies and guidelines can work together to guide development in Downtown Burlington. There will be more opportunities for you to be involved in developing the guidelines later in the fall. For now, the first draft of the guidelines is a reference to help you give feedback on the Official Plan policies.

Next steps

This September, the project team will:

  • release a new appendix with an update on the project and responding to comments received before Aug. 28.
  • hold a virtual open house meeting where you can ask questions about the recommended policy modifications.
  • present the recommendations to City Council at a special meeting of the Community Planning, Regulation, and Mobility Committee on Sept. 30, 2020. Anyone can delegate at this meeting.

On Oct. 7, City Council will make a decision on the recommendations. Council’s decision will then be sent to Halton Region to be included in the Region’s review of the overall adopted Official Plan.
