Ideas wanted: City seeking public participation in evergreen community design workshop


Burlington, Ont., May 10, 2012 – If you could design your own community, what would it look like? That is the question the city’s planning staff are asking residents in a collaborative effort to develop design ideas for a new north Burlington community.

The proposed development—known as the Evergreen community—will be located on a large stretch of land to the west of Tremaine Road, between Dundas Street and Highway 407 and bounded by Bronte Creek.

Currently, the City of Burlington is preparing a Secondary Plan for the area, outlining the policies and mapping that detail how this undeveloped parcel of land will be used in the future.

The city is reaching out to the public to participate in an interactive workshop to get public input on community design elements such as land use; transportation and natural features.

Evergreen Community Design Workshop
Wednesday, May 16, 2012
6:30 to 9 p.m.
Tansley United Church - Sanctuary Room
2111 Walkers Line

The information collected at the workshop will be considered in the overall development of the Secondary Plan and will be reflected in the design concepts that will later be shared for additional community input before the preferred concept is presented to city council for consideration.
