Pre-application Consultation Virtual Meeting

On behalf of Fairview GO Ltd., Weston Consulting is hosting a virtual pre-application community meeting to discuss a proposal to redevelop the property located at 5041 Fairview Street.

The proposed development would consist of a mixed-use development consisting of two 20-storey residential towers, with commercial and office space provided on the first two storeys. A total of 2,982.4 square metres of commercial space is proposed and a total of 390 residential units.

If Fairview GO Ltd. chooses to pursue this redevelopment, it would require an amendment to the City of Burlington Official Plan and Zoning By-Law. The current Official Plan designation of the site is Mixed-Use Corridor Employment, and the current Zoning is Mixed Use Corridor (MXE).

No development applications have been submitted to the City of Burlington at this time, and the City has not made any decisions on this proposal.

    City must explain before zoning change max. density and height vs new zoning proposed. City should also add appropriate parkland in area.

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.
