Public Meeting for Millcroft Greens Application set for March 2nd

Millcroft Greens GC

The City of Burlington will be hosting a Statutory Public Meeting on March 2, 2021 at 1 p.m. to discuss the staff recommendation report regarding the Millcroft Greens application, and gain feedback from the community. If necessary, the meeting will continue at 6:30-10 p.m.

As not all technical comments have been received, and given the complexity and scale of the applications, Burlington Community Planning staff will be recommending that Council direct staff to continue to review and process the applications.

Due to COVID-19, this Statutory Public Meeting will be conducted virtually. Information on how to delegate (speak) at the meeting is below. You can access the meeting through the City of Burlington’s online calendar, please visit www.burlington.ca/calendar.

A notice of this meeting is being sent through standard mail to all residents in proximity to the proposed development, and any residents who have provided their address to our planning staff. Please feel free to share this notice with your neighbours. You can find a copy of the notice here: Statutory Public Meeting Notice March 2, 2021 – Millcroft Greens.

Thank you!

Through this application process, we’ve seen how engaged the Millcroft community is and I wanted to thank the hundreds of people of all ages who have sent in their valuable feedback to all of council on this application. It has been wonderful to see everyone take part in the planning process.

I hope you can join us to hear the conversation among staff, council and residents who choose to delegate.

If you have any questions, please reach out to me or your Ward councillor.

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

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.
