Burlington council backs down: Aldershot’s Clearview west side to be retained as low density

by | Jul 12, 2018

Council voted unanimously to direct staff to include the West side of Clearview Ave. in the Grove Park/St. Matthew’s Neighbourhood precinct of the Aldershot Mobility Hub, when plans come back for approval in 2019.
This precinct is low density, and allows only single family homes, semi-detached and street townhouses. The proposed permission for 11 storeys on the west side of Clearview will be removed.
This is a direct result of community advocacy: residents attended meetings, shared your feedback with staff, wrote to council and more recently submitted comments to this committee meeting. Well done to all.
The staff direction will come to City Council on Monday, July 6, at 6:30pm for final approval, and residents can register to speak in support. https://www.burlington.ca/en/your-city/delegation-registration.asp

My Take:

Clearview never should have been included for high density. This is a stable low density residential neighbourhood and needs to remain so.  Though council initially rejected my motions to keep this area low density, they have now come around thanks to the community’s efforts. It’s been great for me to work with all of you to achieve this significant victory to protect the neighbourhood. There is more work to be done on this hub, but this is a big step in the right direction.
Great work everyone. Advocacy can work, challenging decisions even when minds seem made up!

Burlington is at a cross-roads and many residents feel its headed in the wrong direction. I must give up my council seat to run, but I believe if I wait 4 more years it will be too late. I'm running now to take action to protect the city we love.
