Housing in Burlington covers the full spectrum. From the outrageously expensive to the basement apartment that is poorly heated and too expensive. The only housing the city doesn’t have are shelters set up in the ravines where the homeless do their best to keep warm

The City of Burlington is hosting a Virtual Launch for the Burlington Housing Strategy on Monday, March 8 at 7 p.m. The Housing Strategy is an opportunity to develop creative, innovative solutions for housing issues in Burlington. The City’s strategy will build on and support Halton Region’s Housing Strategy.

Last month, City Council endorsed the Burlington Housing Strategy Terms of Reference and directed City staff to start work on a Housing Strategy to give current and future residents more housing options.

Residents are invited to join City staff and a community panel to learn and talk about housing in Burlington. The Virtual Launch of the Burlington Housing Strategy is on March 8 from 7 to 9 p.m. on Zoom. To hear the presentation and join the discussion, click on https://zoom.us/j/91995969251


Whenever it sells – it will sell for millions

The launch, hosted by City staff, will feature a community panel of key stakeholders from government, the private sector and the community to share their ideas. Ted Hildebrandt of Community Development Halton will present, followed by a discussion period for community members and stakeholders to give input, voice concerns and share experiences.

Residents are encouraged to take the online Burlington Housing Strategy survey as well, starting on Monday, March 1.

The feedback gathered from the survey and during this meeting will be considered as City staff develop a draft housing engagement plan. Staff will present the draft engagement plan and community feedback to Council at the Community Planning, Regulation & Mobility Committee on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.

    I am at a loss to how this is even remotely any of your business. You have willing buyers buying housing from a local builder that creates hundreds of high paying jobs in this community. Both buyers and builder appear to be happy. Where exactly do you fit in here.

    the ADI development at Aldershot GO looks like an ugly collection of soviet-era barracks. Why this developer can continue to spit in the face of the city is a mystery. Why anyone would want to live here is another mystery.
