Your chance to use pictures to tell the city what you think. No prizes – but the picture could get used online

By Staff

Burlington, ON June 6, 2011 Do you like taking photos?  Do you think Burlington is a great place to live, work, and play?  Show us what makes Burlington great with your photos.

The city wants every idea anyone has about what it should look like in the next 20 to 25 years and is currently working up a strategic plan to get us through the next three and a half years of that long term vision.

Residents have been a bit less than forthcoming with ideas – other than the same old, same old from places like the Chamber of Commerce. So they are going to try a slightly different angle and ask people to send in photographs of what they think their city should look like. Have you taken picture that equals the thousand words that sum up what Burlington is to you? Send it in.

As part of the development of the city’s new strategic plan, Burlington, Our Future, the city is inviting you to take photos demonstrating your vision for Burlington – now and in the future.  This strategic plan will be used by city council as it makes decisions that will shape our city over the next four years.  By submitting an entry, your photos may be used in an online photo gallery or in the city’s various publications.

Anyone living or working in Burlington may submit their photo(s). Submissions will be accepted until Thursday, June 30, 2011.

When making a submission to the What Makes Burlington Great? Online Photo Gallery please include: a photo, a completed Photo Gallery Submission Form with your name and e-mail address as well as a title for and a description of your photo.

Please visit, for more information on the What Makes Burlington Great? Online Photo Gallery.

There is a photograph that speaks to us at Our Burlington. As you drive north on Guelph Line – and you’re coming over the hump that crosses the QEW you can see it on the horizon. Get to Guelph Line and Palmer Drive and there it is in all its glory – this massive Canadian flag flying outside the Fortino’s store.

For us – it doesn’t get better than this. We’re going to submit this picture. What have you got?
