The City of Burlington Official Plan
The City of Burlington created an Official Plan in response to the Province of Ontario’s demands for intensification. Within the plan, more about the city looked at areas well suited for intensification, as well as unique culturally sensitive areas that were not suited to typical approaches — specifically neighbourhoods that would be negatively impacted historically and culturally by the changes brought on by intensification’s zoning and land use changes.
Among the downtown neighbourhoods that the city recognized as being critical to save from intensification was The St. Luke’s Precinct.
Read more about the downtown neighbourhoods or “precincts” that the city has asked the province, and people of Burlington to protect from intensification — here on page 73 of the Official Plan: http://cms.burlington.ca/Page846.aspx
Why is the future of this protected neighbourhood in jeopardy? Find out here.
We are strongly opposed to the proposed rezoning as this development will forever change the fabric and character of this community. The negative impact to the residents of this community is significant.
It is with great regret that the conversation regarding this proposed development has even come this far; it makes no sense and will only benefit the developer. We are prepared to offer unwavering support to ensure that the zoning for our community remains protected from developers who are inconsiderate to the very aspects that make our community a precious place to live.
