You are invited to an open house to view these new maps and to ask questions of city and regional  staff about the new mapping, their implications and the process ahead that will lead to further refinements to these maps. (A revised copy of the proposed new Official Plan with the new maps will be released the week of March 26.)

Date and Time:
Monday, April 9, 2018 07:00 PM – 08:00 PM

Haber Community Centre, Community Room 2
3040 Tim Dobbie Drive
Burlington, Ontario, L7M 0M3


On Feb. 9, 2018, the Province of Ontario released new mapping that relates to the Natural Heritage System and Agricultural System in Burlington. As a result, the city is now adding maps to its proposed new Official Plan to incorporate this new provincial mapping. 

Report Recommending Adoption of the Proposed New Official Plan


A report recommending adoption of Burlington’s proposed new Official Plan will be presented to Burlington City Council at a meeting of the Planning and Development Committee on Tuesday, April 24 at 1:30 and 6:30 p.m. and, if required, Wednesday, April 25 at 9:30 a.m. at City Hall in Council Chambers.

A special meeting of Burlington City Council will immediately follow the Planning and Development Committee meeting.

If you wish to delegate at the April 24 meeting, you must register by noon on Monday, April 23. Please visit to register.

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.
