If your are in the New Street Fortinos keep an eye out for City Staff in the Food Court

Not the easiest bit of news to find.

There has always been slip ups when it comes to involving the public in what gets done at the Bateman Community Centre.

The city announced yesterday that they have added two neighbourhood drop-in sessions at Fortinos Burlington New Street location (5111 New St.).

Stop by the food court area to speak with staff to tell them how you envision using the green space.

  • Tuesday, April 23 from 4:30 to 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 4, 9 a.m. to noon

No registration necessary.

The redesign of the former high school had problems with determining how many parking spaces would be needed.  One of the current solutions was to eliminate the track and field at the rear of the property. The City is now looking for public input on how the remaining greenspace will look.  The City also wants to know-how some space from the adjacent Frontenac Park can be used.

Nice idea – it will be interesting to see how it works.
