Two members of Council issue a Joint Statement and then put it on their Facebook pages

BURLINGTON, ON

Sometime after we were advised of the Facebook posting the Office of the Mayor issued a document

It is a different way of communicating.

Mayor Meed Ward and Councillor Lisa Kearns released a Joint Statement today on the Holland Park development proposed for Fairview and Drury Lane.

Basically they said there wasn’t all that much they can do about a development that has literally nothing in the way of caps on the height.

There is a drawing of what the developers are proposing set out below.

Our question is:  Was posting the Joint Statement on Facebook pages an attempt to slip something past the public?

The proposal is for seven buildings with heights ranging from 29 to 37 storeys. .

It is going to be the biggest residential development the city has ever seen – with no height controls.

    “Our question is:  Was posting the Joint Statement on Facebook pages an attempt to slip something past the public?”

    Could it just be it is what it appears to be; the Mayor and Councilor providing residents information on this proposed development and clearly stating the development as presented falls within all zoning bylaws and so has to be approved.

    Please Publisher tell us just what dastardly thing do you think the Mayor and Councilor might be trying to “slip past the public”.

    Poor journalism in my view.

    Well better there. This IS a “Transit Hub” and there are walkable “Shopping Hubs” to support these citizens for their needs unlike what happened Downtown and is still being proposed in South-East Burlington on existing Shopping Hub Plazas etc. May we all Hope DEVELOPERS provide adequate sewage/waste water management and Just maybe DE-PAVE, PLANT A TREE OR MORE so we can remember Holland Park.an mitigate our Flood issues..
