Preparations underway for Sept. 21 Millcroft Greens public meeting


In the last few weeks, myself, your Ward 6 Councillor Angelo Bentivegna, and Ward 3 Councillor Rory Nisan, have had the opportunity to meet virtually or in person with representatives of Millcroft Against Development (M.A.D),  We Love Millcroft and the applicant for Millcroft Greens to discuss the proposed development and the format for the Sept. 21 pre-application public meeting.

The meeting will likely be virtual, with potential for limited in person participation, depending on the restrictions on gathering size at that time due to COVID19.

Details to date:

Pre-Application Public Meeting Millcroft Greens proposal

Date: September 21
Time: 7-9:30pm
Location:  Virtual, public can join by phone or computer; limited participation may be possible in City Council Chambers
Broadcast: The meeting will be live webcast from City Council Chambers and archived on the City website
1. Receive information from the applicant about the proposal.
2. Receive information from city planning staff about the planning process.
3. Ask questions of the applicant or planning staff.
4. Share your thoughts, concerns, suggestions.

The applicant is required to show how they incorporated public input into their application. No application has yet been filed, as the public meeting is a required step prior to filing.

Some of the additional steps we have agreed to:

1. Millcroft Greens to work with city staff, mayor and councillors to send an initial mailing to all households in Millcroft advising them to “Save the Date” for the September 21 meeting.

2. A small resident group formed to work with the city to go over all technical details of the meeting.

3. Millcroft Greens to pre-record a presentation providing an overview of the proposal; city planning staff to pre-record an overview of the planning process. These will be circulated in advance so residents can be better prepared to ask questions and provide input. This information will be shared via this newsletter and posted on the city’s webpage dedicated to this project. Millcroft Greens – 2155 Country Club Drive

4. Millcroft Greens to work with residents, city staff, mayor and councillors on a second mailing to all households in the Millcroft area advising the format of the meeting and how to participate by phone or computer.

If you have suggestions or questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Stay healthy and cool this summer!

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.
