The City of Burlington is inviting residents to provide feedback on its Construction and Mobility Management Policy (CMMP).

This policy was first approved by council back in 2019 to address construction impacts on sidewalks, cycling facilities, parking and streets.

The CMMP provides guidelines to minimize impacts to sidewalks, cycling lanes, parking and streets during construction of new developments, provide consistency in the City’s review and approval of proposed developments, successfully manage multiple developments, potentially in close proximity, while maintaining an active city for residents and businesses and coordinate private development with planned construction by the City, Halton Region and Utility companies on public roads.

Back in 2020, staff proposed an amendment to the original policy in order to establish more guidelines for the approval and management of low-density residential construction activities. This was done to minimize impacts to public health and safety, amenities, traffic and the environment in the area.

Staff is currently seeking feedback from residents in an online survey on how construction has impacted them both before and after the City implemented the CMMP.

“The City is committed to engaging people on issues that affect their lives and their city. This is why we’re taking a pause to hear from residents to consider their feedback and evaluate the Construction and Mobility Management Policy,” said Cary Clark, Manager of Development and Storm Water Engineering.

“We know construction can be disruptive, whether it is in your neighbourhood or along your daily commute. I encourage residents to read the background information on the policy and take the survey to let us know what they think.”
