Jim Thomson – a persistent delegator

Jim Thomson, a citizen who delegates frequently, albeit as a virtual participant, asks a serious question.

Why is a Motion to pass a bylaw going directly to Council and not part of an item on the Committee of the Whole agenda?

The Motion details are set out below.

NOTICE OF INTENTION TO PASS A BY-LAW

 TO STOP UP AND CLOSE PART OF THE ASSUMED ROAD

ALLOWANCE KNOWN AS ELIZABETH STREET BEING A TRIANGULAR SHAPED PARCEL OF LAND ABUTTING 2030 CAROLINE STREET (formerly known as 511, 515 John Street, 2020, 2022, 2024, 2026, 2028 Caroline Street)   

File 575-04-J.01

(DA-05-24, March 3, 2024)

The Council for the Corporation of the City of Burlington, at its meeting to be held on July 16, 2024,  intends to pass a by-law to stop up and close part of the assumed road allowance known as Elizabeth Street being a triangular shaped parcel of land described as Part of Lot 1, Block B, Plan 92, designated as Part 7, 20R18672 (being Part of PIN 07067-0023 (LT)), in the City of Burlington, Regional Municipality of Halton, and sell the lands to the abutting registered owners of 2030 Caroline Street.

At this meeting, Council will hear in person, or by his or her counsel, group of persons, or organization who claims their lands will be prejudicially affected by the said by-law.  Delegations must register with the City Clerk’s Department by noon on July 15, 2024, either in writing, by fax (905) 335-7675, by e-mail cityclerks@burlington.ca or by telephone (905) 335-7600 (ext. 7805).  Each delegation  is allowed a maximum of five minutes to present their support or opposition to the by-law.

For further information on this proposed by-law, please contact Kristen Ljubicic, Realty Manager at 905-335-7600 ext. 7581 or kristen.ljubicic@burlington.ca.

There is no map or illustration of the piece of land nor any mention of its size.  It would appear to be related to the development of the lots north of the Berkeley condominium where a parking garage and an additional tower are planned.
