September 2020 - Virtual Open House and Public Meeting
You are invited to attend an Open House and Public Meeting on the recommended modifications to Burlington’s adopted Official Plan (adopted in April 2018). The recommended policy modifications will update the policies of the adopted Official Plan (2018) for Downtown Burlington based on a refined land use vision and built form concept for Downtown as endorsed by City Council on Jan. 27, 2020. Additionally, minor modifications are proposed to simplify and clarify the policies for Neighbourhood Centres, which apply to various locations across the city.
Virtual Open House - Sept. 16, 2020 from 7 - 8 p.m. on Microsoft Teams Live
The Open House will provide the public with the chance to learn more and ask questions about the recommended policy modifications with City staff. There will be a short presentation followed by a question-and-answer period.
A link with meeting instructions and how to access the meeting will be posted on Get Involved closer to the meeting date.
Please submit questions in advance by Sept. 15, using the form on the Get Involved here. You can also ask live questions during the meeting.
Virtual Public Meeting - Sept. 30, 2020
At a Public Meeting on Sept. 30, staff will present the recommended policy modifications to the Community Planning, Regulation, and Mobility Committee of City Council through two reports and presentations:
- Report PL-16-20: Taking a Closer Look at the Downtown: Recommended Modifications to the Adopted Official Plan
- Report PL-18-20: Recommended Modifications to Adopted Official Plan Policies for Neighbourhood Centres and for Mixed Use Nodes and Intensification Corridors
These reports are the results of the Scoped Re-examination of the Adopted Official Plan, in accordance with the work plan approved by Council in May 2019 (PB-47-19).
Both reports will be published on the City’s website in the meeting agenda on Sept. 10, 2020.
Recommended Mapping for Downtown
On June 8, the project team released report PL-16-20 and the recommended modifications to policies and mapping for Downtown. This included a revised map of Downtown precincts in a new “Schedule D”, which was contained in Appendix 3 of PL-16-20. Some members of the public have asked the project team to share a copy of the recommended new Schedule D that is separate from Appendix 3, to make it easier to refer to. As requested, here is a copy of that Schedule for ease of reference:
