Hello,

On July 24 our City entered Phase 3 of the Province's Framework for Reopening our Province. Many of the activities and businesses that compromise our community are now accessible to the public while following strict public health guidelines.
With summer in full swing, we are now able to enjoy more outdoor activities, while still respecting public health guidelines. Activities include:

Playgrounds
  • Playground users should practice physical distancing of two metres with anyone not from their household or social circle
  • Bring hand sanitizer with you to the park as playground equipment is not being sanitized
  • If a playground is busy, consider one of Burlington’s many other parks or come back at another time
Let’s Play!
Did you know that you can borrow a wide range of fun and unique play equipment from the city? And, it's free of charge. Learn a new game and add some fun to your next get together. Learn more.

Other Summer Activities
  • Parks are open for casual use, such as exercising, picnics or throwing a ball
  • Pools and splash parks are open for leisure swims and lap swims with online pre-registration and payment only
  • Spray pads at parks are open
  • Redesigned summer camps are underway
  • Redesigned Adult 19+ and Adult 55+ programs are open

For more information, including safety measures, facility videos, program information and registration dates, visit summer programs.

My office is continuing to work at full capacity, I can be reached through e-mail at Lisa.Kearns@Burlington.ca.
 
Keep well, Lisa

COVID-19 Updates
Halton Region - Current Cases
as at August 4, 2020:
Visit Halton Region for more details.
COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing Clinic
Joseph Brant Hospital has increased its COVID-19 testing capacity by opening a new drive-thru clinic to better serve our community.

The clinic is dedicated to testing individuals who are not experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, but who are concerned they may have been exposed or require testing. The Joseph Brant Hospital COVID-19 Assessment Centre continues to operate as a testing centre for individuals who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

The Drive-Thru Testing Clinic is located on the hospital grounds, easily accessed off of Joseph Brant Hospital’s entrance on North Shore Blvd. Appointments are required and can be booked online by visiting COVID testing or call 905 632-3737, x 6550.
COVID Alert App
The Government of Canada, in collaboration with other orders of government and across sectors, has developed a new nation-wide mobile app to let users know if they may have been exposed to COVID-19. The COVID Alert app is available to all Canadians for free download in the App Store and Google Play.

City Hall - Online Services
While all other customer service counters within City Hall including Planning, Building and the Clerks Department remain closed at this time, the City encourages businesses and residents to use its online services:
Face Masks - Temporary By-law
As our local economy and community reopens, it is more important than ever to follow public health direction and take personal responsibility to protect yourself, loved ones and the community.

In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of the community, the City of Burlington has implemented a temporary Mask By-law which regulates the use of face masks and coverings within enclosed spaces open to the public. The city has since approved amendments to the temporary Mask By-law, consistent with Halton Region's Mask Bylaw.

Businesses need your support to recover from the economic effects of COVID-19, these businesses are our friends and neighbours. Our business community is putting your health first by following the by-laws. We are all learning how to navigate this unprecedented time, and I am hopeful this short video (on Facebook) helps us learn how we're all in this together.

Please be kind. I have received calls from community members broken down to tears because of their treatment for not wearing a mask. It is important to please be respectful to the rights of individuals that are exempt from wearing a mask in conformity with the exemptions.
Face Masks - City Offers Free Face Masks
To assist people in complying with the temporary Mask By-law and to help contain the spread of COVID-19, the city is offering free packs of disposable masks from City Hall. Individual re-useable masks are also available from City Hall and Burlington Public Library’s Tansley Woods, New Appleby, Aldershot and Central branches. Learn more.

Accepting Donations - The City is also collecting re-useable cloth masks (preferred) and disposable face masks from anyone who would like to donate them. Businesses are welcome to donate branded masks. For those who wish, monetary donations are also accepted to help the City purchase more masks for residents. Learn more.
Ward 2 News
Burlington Seniors' Centre
Burlington residents will have another chance to connect, socialize and be active as re-designed Adult 19+ and Adult 55+ recreational activities have safely resumed with a small selection of activities at the Burlington Seniors’ Centre and Central Park.

Watch a video to learn what it will look like when visiting the Burlington Seniors' Centre this summer. For more information visit summer programs.
Elgin Street Promenade - Your Input Needed
The Elgin Street Promenade construction is entering into its final phase and the city is asking for your vote on one of two carefully thought-out designs.

The design and material will be similar to the rest of the walkway such as lighting, bollards and pavement. Since the east section of the walkway is wider, there is an opportunity to increase the use from a through-way to a space to rest.
The remaining space has been designed to accommodate a variety of users and fosters active play, passive seating, shade, creativity, and interest in the downtown core. Both proposed concepts will be public spaces that are accessible and comfortable to use by people of ages and abilities.
Your Input Required
Visit Get Involved Burlington to view both design options and then place your vote. Note that voting is available until August 14, 2020.

Construction of the final plan is expected to begin in the spring of 2021, and once complete, the promenade will be a beautiful multi-use pathway connecting Brant Street to Martha Street and the Centennial Multi-Use Pathway.
Parking - Downtown
As the City of Burlington continues to resume services during COVID-19, payment will be required in the downtown for on-street parking and in municipal parking lots effective Tuesday, August 4, 2020.

Recent observations, review of occupancy data and feedback from the public indicate that parking is steadily increasing to pre-COVID levels. It is anticipated the increase in parking demand will continue as most businesses reopen since Halton Region entered Stage 3 on July 24, 2020. 

Visitors using downtown parking are encouraged to use the HONK Mobile app. Honk offers touch-free payment and reduces the number of people touching the same parking machines throughout the day. Learn more.
Parking - Beachway
Due to an abundance of illegal parking near Beachway Park, the beachway lots have been reconfigured to include:
  • One entrance and one exit to maximize legal parking spots
  • A drop-off area has been added
  • Areas that are not available for parking have been blocked, and
  • Parking ambassadors are available on weekends to help direct drivers and will close parking lot entrances when they are full.
Pedestrian Priority Crossings - Brant Street
Pedestrian priority crossings to Brant Street are coming soon. No more 'Wait for Gap' as hundreds of crossings are made at the areas with ‘Wait for Gap’ signs along lower Brant Street.
This long requested improvement will correctly prioritize pedestrians over vehicles in locations where confusion can result in the potential for collisions. Three Brant Street crossings, at Pine, Elgin and Maria will receive enhanced pedestrian crossover installations in August.
Port Nelson Park Renewal
As a result of the recent safety audit of the Port Nelson Parkette (located on Lakeshore Road at the foot of Guelph Line) which deemed the playground equipment to be poor and may become unsafe if not repaired or removed, the playground equipment is being removed. Next steps:
  • 2021 - Construction of shoreline improvements and park design/community engagement for park renewal including the playground
  • 2022 - Park construction including new play area, pathways, furnishings and signage
Ward 2 Virtual Community Update Meetings
Ward 2 Community Update meetings will resume in the Fall - the next session will be Thursday, September 24th at 7 p.m.
Planning + Development
Interim Control By-law (ICBL)
On Jan. 30 at the Special Council Meeting, Council approved the revised recommendations from the findings of the Interim Control Bylaw (ICBL) Land Use Study, including approval of:
  • proposed Official Plan Amendmnt 119
  • proposed Zoning Bylaw Amendment 2020.418

Following this meeting, Official Plan Amendment 119 and Zoning By-law Amendment 2020.218 were appealed to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT). As a result of these appeals, the ICBL (development freeze) remains in effect.

Planning staff will not be providing recommendation reports to Council for planning files within the ICBL boundary until appeals are settled at the Tribunal.

The documents received by the City Clerk which constitute appeals to Official Plan Amendment 119 and Zoning By-law Amendment 2020.418 can be viewed on the city's ICBL webpage.
Official Plan - Downtown Policies

You’re Invited to a Virtual Information Meeting on August 18 - In June the project team released recommended modifications to the downtown policies in the adopted Official Plan, along with related reports.

There is a lot of information to sift through and to help you navigate and understand the recommended modifications to the adopted Official Plan, the project team is hosting a virtual information meeting on August 18 at 7 p.m.

The virtual information meeting is an opportunity for you to ask questions and learn more about the recommended policy modifications. The project team will present the recommendations and then answer your questions.

Information on how to participate in the virtual information will be posted on the project webpage on Get Involved Burlington closer to the meeting date.

Your Feedback is Requested by August 28
If you have comments on the recommended policy modifications, please submit your comments by Friday, August 28. This will give the project team time to consider your feedback while finalizing the report for the September 30 Committee meeting.

Questions and comments can be directed to the project team via:
  • E-mail newop@burlington.ca
  • Call 905 335-7600, ext. 7787 - Leave a message and staff will call you back during business hours. Staff are monitoring voicemail and will respond as soon as possible.

Planning + Development Projects
374 Martha Street (at Lakeshore Road)
Adi Developments

As a result of site logistics, construction traffic may deviate from time to time from the Construction Management Plan. As excavation and shoring continues this week, the following Construction Management Plan is in effect:
  • The alternative circulation patterns have been approved by City Staff and are in accordance with the Ontario Traffic Manual (OTM) Book
  • These alternative traffic measures will be minimized as much as possible between the hours of 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. as a result of peak traffic hours and per City Staff Approval
  • Traffic Control Personnel will be used during this time to control both vehicular traffic and pedestrian traffic, as per City Staff Approval and MTO Book

I will be providing updates on construction progress on a regular basis to ensure that residents are fully aware of the construction management plan. There is a master plan that has been approved and presented to the public, however, there are slight deviations in construction that are vetted through City Staff. The purpose of these updates are to ensure that there is a community understanding of what is happening and when it is happening. View the project schedule and please contact my office at Lisa.Kearns@Burlington.ca with any questions or concerns.

Eco Tips for Pools, Hot Tubs and Spas
With summer travel plans altered due to COVID-19, backyard staycations and pools are increasing in popularity. While backyard pools offer a refreshing and fun option creating many lifelong memories, it’s important to follow some basic environmentally-friendly actions. Good eco-friendly pool, spa and hot tub maintenance actually starts with knowing about sanitary and storm sewers. Did you know there is a difference between sanitary sewers and storm sewers? Learn more including tips about ongoing pool maintenance.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions / Idling
Vehicles that idle unnecessarily increase greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. Please turn off your engine when you are waiting in your vehicle. You'll save fuel and reduce your impact on the environment.
Growing the Gift of Food
Are you one of many gardeners who is growing your own food this year? Depending on what you've planted, you’re most likely already enjoying the results of your labour. If you have excess produce, please consider donating it to a local food security agency such as the Burlington Food Bank. Read more.
Tips for Providing Fresh Produce
Please ensure that food donations are in good condition when delivered to help ensure quality fresh food is passed onto people in need. With the hot temperatures experienced this summer, unrefrigerated produce will deteriorate quickly. Read some tips to ensure donated fresh produce remains clean, dry and unspoiled.
Community
Community Support Fund
As part of the City of Burlington’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City has relaunched its existing community support programs into a streamlined program called the Community Support Fund (CSF).

This umbrella program will join existing programs to provide financial support to residents and community groups who want to enrich and connect the Burlington community through sport, recreation, art and cultural experiences. The combined fund will simplify the funding process and make it easier for Burlington residents and community groups to access financial supports to enhance their community’s well-being. Learn more.
Festivals and Events
Based on the Province’s restrictions on group sizes and social gatherings due to COVID-19, the City will continue to investigate and implement virtual celebrations where possible.

Given the recent success of the City’s virtual Canada Day event, City staff are exploring virtual Remembrance Day and Santa Claus Parade options. All in-person festivals and events will be cancelled until the provincial group size is increased to 1,000 people.
Fit in the Core @ Home
Burlington Downtown recently launched Fit in the Core @ Home with its 8th season going virtual. Every week, a new video featuring a different class and instructor from the downtown fitness community is posted. This new online series allows you to participate regardless of where you are.

Did you know that unattended cooking is the number one cause of home fires and injuries in Burlington and in our Province? On average, in Ontario, 1,239 fires per year are started by cooking.

Over the past few months, the Burlington Fire Department has seen an increase in cooking fires. Our Fire Department advises that they believe this is due to an increased presence at home with more time to prepare meals. Cooking fires are considered 100% preventable, caused by human actions or behaviours. Learn more about cooking fire-safety tips in the kitchen and watch a Cooking and Kitchen Fire safety video.
Burlington Food Bank
The Burlington Food Bank provides food to those in need throughout the city. Its role in the community is to collect, purchase, grow, and distribute food directly to families in Burlington that need a little help.

Over the last couple of months, the Burlington Food Bank has provided food to many in need in our community. Thank you to the many volunteers who have dedicated their time to help our less fortunate. If you are in need of food or if you would like to donate or volunteer, visit Burlington Food Bank.

In closing
During these challenging times, little acts of kindness can go a long way to picking someone’s spirits up. People who look like they’ve got it all together may be the ones struggling the most. Remember we are in this together and are here for each other. Ward 2 is so blessed to be such a caring community with many great, neighbourly acts happening everyday.

Did you know? The city recently launched the In My Hood Program, a program whereby residents are encouraged to collaborate and implement changes or make new opportunities happen at a neighbourhood level, especially during this isolation period by building relationships and getting to know neighbours. Residents are encouraged to join the discussion and share ideas, actions or kudos on the Get Involved Burlington webpage.
Keep well, stay calm, show kindness.
