Residents, stakeholders can still have a say about Burlington’s long-term housing strategy

This is the last chance for Burlington residents to have their say about the City’s Housing Strategy.

Between April 19 until May 3, the City is looking for feedback on the draft Housing Strategy document through a survey and two virtual open houses.

The feedback will guide the work on the Housing Strategy, which is an opportunity to develop creative and innovative solutions for housing in Burlington, that build on and support the Halton Region’s Comprehensive Housing Strategy.

Residents and stakeholders are invited to complete the fourth and final housing strategy survey online and attend a virtual open house April 23, 25 or May 2.

The virtual open houses will see City staff will provide a project update, overview of the work completed to date and discuss the draft housing strategy.

The focus will be to discuss the recommended actions identified in the draft Housing Strategy. Stakeholders are encouraged to join the discussion, ask questions, share feedback and learn more about the project.

The open house on Saturday, April 23, at 1 p.m. is being held in partnership with Halton Multicultural Council for residents who do not speak English or speak English as their second language.

The other two events are at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 25 and May 2.

“What residents and stakeholders have shared with us so far on housing in our community is invaluable,” said Mark Simeoni, director of Community Planning.

“We have been able to take these insights and develop a draft Housing Strategy. It’s not too late to learn more about the project, to have your say and to influence the final Housing Strategy for Burlington.”
