Have your say about future development around Burlington’s three GO stations


Published October 12, 2021 at 11:07 am

The majority of development in Burlington will continue to be around the city’s three GO stations and now is your chance to have your say about how it will look.

The City of Burlington is continuing to seek input from the community about the Aldershot, Appleby and Burlington GO Major Transit Station Areas (MTSAs) through upcoming virtual meetings hosted by City planning staff.

Area-Specific Plans (ASPs) are being devloped for Burlington’s three Major Transit Station Areas to create a vision for future growth. The goal is to build complete communities close to transit, services and amenities by locating more people and jobs within about a ten-minute walk of the GO stations.

This will allow more people to live, connect, work and play in Burlington’s existing urban area, while protecting the city’s natural heritage and agricultural systems from urban expansion.

Once endorsed, the preferred precinct plans will help define the city’s vision for guiding future development in the MTSAs based on land use, building heights and urban design considerations.

Residents and stakeholders can attend one or all four virtual Public Information Centres to get more information and learn about the project:

  • Aldershot GO MTSA: Wednesday, Oct. 13, 7 to 9 p.m.
  • Burlington GO MTSA: Tuesday, Oct. 19, 7 to 9 p.m.
  • Appleby GO MTSA: Tuesday, Oct. 26, 7 to 9 p.m.
  • All MTSAs: Tuesday, Nov. 2, 7 to 9 p.m.

For more information, including the zoom links and call in numbers to join the meetings, visit the city website.

This page also contains project background reports and detailed study area boundary maps, an online workbook to share feedback and an option to subscribe for project updates.

Residents can connect with MTSA staff at [email protected] or 905-335-7642.
