There are a few Public Information Centres (PICs) coming up that deal with a renewal project for Civic Square and Brant Street, and the second phase of the Tuck Creek Flood Mitigation involving the New Street bridge upgrade and channel works.

TUCK CREEK FLOOD MITIGATION (2019-03-20 PIC Notice TC 2 Final) — PIC on Wednesday, March 20

The City of Burlington completed the Tuck Creek Flood Assessment and Crossing Upgrades Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study (hydro corridor north of New Street to Spruce Avenue) in June 2016. The study was completed following the extreme rain storm on Aug. 4, 2014 during which significant creek flooding occurred in this area. The Study’s recommendations include stormwater infrastructure improvements to reduce the flooding risk. The recommended works were divided into three phases. Phase 1, which includes the Regal Road bridge upgrade and channel works between New Street and Spruce Avenue, is currently under construction and will be completed in the of summer 2019.

Phase 2 Phase 2 includes upgrading both the New Street bridge and the creek channel (from the hydro corridor to south of New Street). Construction is anticipated to begin in July 2019.

You are invited to a Public Information Centre (PIC) where you can discuss the project and get more information on the details of the design and upcoming construction, including limits of construction, site access, tree preservation and plantings.

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.
