Last week the Burlington Chamber of Commerce hosted the 2020 Mayor’s State of the City. This annual event welcomed over 300 people to hear Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Ward reflect on 2019 and present future plans for Council. Highlights from 2019 include additional measures taken to protect our environment and green space, developing a Key to the City program, strengthening international twinning relationships, updates to public transit, managing development in the downtown, and the Red Tape Red Carpet Taskforce (RTRC). The RTRC was announced at last year's event and now the City is moving the 22 recommendations forward. You can view the progress of the RTRC recommendations here.
