Take the downtown Pop-up Patio Survey

Take the survey: Pop-Up Patio Survey

Staff are looking for your feedback on the City’s pop-up patio program in the downtown. There are currently two pop-up patios from May to October located on Brant Street at Papa Giuseppe’s and The Coop.

Pop-up patios are patios that are built on the street in front of a downtown restaurant.

Do you support the program? Take the survey and let us know what you think.

  1. Marianne if you get a chance take a trip to Kingston and see how they have redesigned downtown streets to accommodate patio’s and areas for stores to display things for sale outside. It does eliminate some on street parking but the benefits are a more flexible and people friendly sidewalk area. This far outweighs the loss of parking.

    1. Thanks for this Sean. I lived in Kingston during public school and Gr. 9 – went to KCVI, now sadly closed – and came back for a summer during university to work at Fort Henry. Lived in the downtown, loved it then, and haven’t been back in a while to see what they’ve done. Good excuse for a road trip!

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful. Got an idea or comment you want to share privately? Please, get in touch:
