Burlington Mayor Launches New Specialized Newsletter for Millcroft


This week, I launched a new specialized newsletter to keep residents up to date as the Millcroft Greens golf course development proposal moves through the planning process and in response to all those who recently emailed me with their requests, comments and/or questions regarding the proposed development.

If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter, please email my office at

The first edition of the newsletter that went out this week was in reference to the rescheduling of the public meeting to Sept. 21.

The applicant is required by the city to host a public meeting prior to submitting any applications.  That meeting has now been rescheduled for September 21. The format of this meeting will be guided by where we’re at with COVID19 and our ability to gather in person.

Notice of the meeting is currently being mailed to the entire Millcroft neighbourhood, roughly bounded by Walker’s Line to the west; Dundas St to the north; Appleby Line to the east and Upper Middle Road to the south. More than 4,000 addresses are included.

The meeting notice is also posted on the city’s webpage dedicated to this project: Millcroft Greens – 2155 Country Club Drive.

Once the details of the Sept. 21 meeting are set, a new mailing will be sent to the Millcroft neighbourhood, and posted on the webpage above. I’ll include it in my next newsletter also.

Please feel free to contact my office with any questions or feedback. I am also working closely with your Ward 6 Councillor Angelo Bentivegna who continues to be a strong voice and connector for the community.

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. Got an idea or comment you want to share privately? Please, get in touch:
