One of the most integral responsibilities of a politician at any level of government is to keep their constituents and residents as well-informed and updated as possible on what is happening in their municipality.
The City of Burlington, Council and I (through my office) received a letter earlier this week from Burlington MPP Jane McKenna giving residents an update from the Provincial point of view on the City’s process of updating our Official Plan and examining our Major Transit Station (MTSA) and Urban Growth Centre (UGC) designations for the downtown.
I sent MPP McKenna a response, thanking her for her letter and involvement. I have met with her and her team to continue the conversation. We will be working together for Burlington citizens as this complex process continues in the coming months.
Both letters were also sent to our Clerks’ Department and are part of the public record, as part of this past week’s committee meetings on Jan. 14 and Jan. 16.
