Pre-Application Consultation Meeting on Jan. 22 for Potential Burlington Development at 62, 66 and 70 Plains Rd. E.


There is a developer-led pre-application consultation meeting scheduled on Jan. 22 regarding a potential 10-storey building at 62, 66 and 70 Plains Rd. E. The building is looking to have approximately 121 residential units.

The site currently contains three single-detached dwellings and is designated as Residential Medium Density. An Official Plan (OP) Amendment and Rezoning would be required to permit the proposed development. No applications have been submitted at this time.

The pre-application consultation meeting, hosted by Bousfields on behalf of Infinity Group, will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020 at East Plains United Church, 375 Plains Rd. E.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and a formal presentation will take place at 7 p.m. City of Burlington planning staff will be attending this meeting to provide an overview of the development application review process, as well as the current OP policies and zoning in effect on the site.

A notice was mailed out to residents living within 120 m of the site on Jan. 2, 2020.

— Mayor Marianne Meed Ward

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.
