Hello Ward 1 friends and neighbours!

Hopefully everyone was able to enjoy the blast of winter that we have endured since my last newsletter. Winter had been fairly dull up until February when the consistent cold and snow storm after snow storm gave us all a reminder that Canadian winter can come at any time with a fury.

As I have stated before, my family really enjoys the activities that winter can offer and this year has been exceptional in Ward 1 for winter fun. My kids have been skating on several ponds throughout Aldershot and Tyandaga and I was able to join them a few times for some great outdoor pond hockey games. Recently, we visited the La Salle park marina and were able to hike on the bay due to it being completely frozen over. It was a new playground for many local residents as we observed several snowmobiles, swans, Canada geese, many people and even 3 small planes landing on the Burlington Bay. It has been several years since the Bay has been completely frozen and it was nice to see so many people enjoying it.

It has been a tough year for recreation activities as most offerings have been cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. It is obvious that many people have been discovering what Burlington has to offer outdoors in terms of their parks and trail systems. I have always been a frequent visitor of our parks and have never seen them this popular.

I encourage everyone to get out and discover some of the great parks and trails that Ward 1 has to offer. La Salle park, Hidden Valley park, City View park , The RBG and the Bruce Trial to name a few popular destinations that are right here in Ward 1. I look forward to seeing you there!

Now that Halton has been moved into the Red Zone, many businesses are open again with various levels of restrictions. When visiting our local businesses please respect their rules and follow protocols with regards to social distancing and masking. Nobody wants a third lockdown for Halton. 

As local Councillors we have been advocating to the province to change the current rules around the 10-person limit in many businesses such as gyms and restaurants. This limit does not work for larger establishments that can keep people distanced easily but may not even open as staffing and operating costs are too high for such limited customers. So far we have not had much success and many businesses are on the brink of permanent closure. 

Please support your local business if you can.
Statement from Randall Smallbone, Chair of Burlington Economic Recovery Network, Regarding Fairness for Local Business During COVID-19
On December 10, the Burlington Economic Recovery Network (BERN), Team Burlington and the City of Burlington advocated at a special meeting of Council to call on the Province for business equity and capacity caps in retail stores to be based on store occupancy rather than hard caps and closures. With Premier Ford’s announcement on February 8th, we learned that the Province has listened. 
When Burlington businesses return to the colour coded reopening Framework on February 16, our retail businesses will be able to stay open in all tiers including grey/lockdown, and occupancy will be based on a store’s capacity limits. 
As we anticipate rapid adjustments to zones and rules for businesses based on the response to new variants, this change in policy will be critical in helping our retail businesses continue to generate revenues and survive through COVID-19 restrictions.
On behalf of BERN and Team Burlington, we are appreciative of the support from City Council, and to the Province for listening to the needs of businesses and recognizing that safety measures cannot be applied as a “one-size-fits-all” solution. These changes will undoubtedly make a significant difference for our small businesses by allowing them to keep their doors open and remain competitive in today’s challenging market. 
Ontario Small Business Support Grant
The Ontario government has opened applications for the new Ontario Small Business Support Grant. The grant, first announced in December, provides a minimum of $10,000 to a maximum of $20,000 to eligible small businesses who have had to restrict their operations due to the Provincewide Shutdown.

Current funding for the DMS Future Proof program ends in February 2021. Burlington’s small business community continues to face barriers to technology adoption and a lack of resources to implement necessary technologies to remain competitive given the impacts of COVID-19.

Each year, the City of Burlington undergoes an annual budget process to create budgets that support city operations and deliver the programs and services required to maintain the high quality of life we enjoy in our community.
Through the budget process, choices are made to ensure the City services provided to residents align with the priorities in Burlington’s 2018-2022 strategic work plan, Vision to Focus.
Key Upcoming Dates:
For more info, or to review Proposed Capital and Operating Budgets, please visit https://www.burlington.ca/en/your-city/Budget.asp
Each winter, the City of Burlington provides snow removal services throughout the city. Our fleet of snow clearing equipment and crews are ready to clear your roads and sidewalks as quickly and efficiently as possible. Every year, we maintain approximately 1,900 km of roads and 850 km of sidewalks. Please give our crews 24 hours after the storm has ended to make any snow clearing requests. City staff concentrate on the primary and secondary routes first.
Visit the road plowing priority map to see which roads are designated as primary, secondary and residential roads.
Remember, on-street parking is suspended during declared Snow Events and 24-hours after the snow event has been cancelled until the residential roads are cleared. Visit our street parking and snow clearing page for more information.
If you drive in, live in or are friends with anyone in Aldershot, you have no doubt heard by now of our new unofficial mascot - the Aldershot Turkey.

She has seemingly declared the intersection of Plains Road and Waterdown Rd/La Salle park Rd as her new temporary home, and has remained there for over a month now.

Many local residents have been posting pictures to social media and she has gained several nicknames ranging from Aldo, Waldo, Clairmont and many more.

I see her there almost every day, keeping watch over traffic as she moves from wire to lamppost or she can often be seen walking on the road or sidewalk. Most days she attracts a small crowd of people attempting to take photos or videos. She does not seem to be afraid of people or cars. Just yesterday someone posted to social media a picture of her on top of their sunroof from inside their car.

I will advise people that they should not be feeding the turkey as this will make her dependent on humans as a means for food.

City of Burlington Animal Services has advised that they have received many calls about the Aldershot Turkey, from residents concerned that she may cause an accident. They have also been working with Halton Regional Police who have responded when she has moved into traffic. The turkey has many times eluded capture or promptly returned to her favorite resting place on top of traffic signals at this corner.

Residents should note that if they do see her on the roadway, they can contact Animal Services at 905-335-3030. Please use caution when driving through this intersection if you see her on the ground. No doubt many would be devastated if anything happened to the Turkey which has become a local celebrity in Aldershot.
The City of Burlington has added two more exciting and free outdoor physical activity opportunities for residents: Disc (frisbee) golf and outdoor winter pickleball courts.

Disc Golf
Disc golf is available as of Jan. 30 until Spring 2021 at Tyandaga Golf Course (1265 Tyandaga Park Dr.) Disc golf is a golf-style game played with specialized flying discs. Instead of hitting a ball into a hole, the player throws a disc into a target and the person with the lowest number of throws wins.
Residents wanting to play can bring their own discs or borrow some from our lending library, available for online reservation and curbside pick-up from Brant Hills Community Centre, 2255 Brant St. 
There is no registration necessary and it is free to play, seven days a week from dawn to dusk. Please note, this course is not intended for organized team play at this time.
All participants will have to ensure they are physically distancing themselves from anyone not within their households and follow all current public health directions.
In order to promote safe interaction on the disc golf course and maintain a level of comfort for everyone present, we ask that all players follow the physical distancing standards noted below:
  • Physical distancing of at least 2 metres
  • Maximum 5 players
  • Approach the next tee when clear
  • Do not touch the equipment of others
  • Only one disc in the basket at a time
  • Minimize contact with the basket
  • Wearing a mask while playing is highly recommended
  • Please do not gather in the parking lot
For more information, visit burlington.ca/outdoorplay.

Outdoor Pickleball Courts
Leighland (1200 Leighland Rd.) and Optimist Park’s (2131 Prospect St.) outdoor Pickleball Courts will open once court and weather conditions improve. This activity is considered outdoor exercise and is exempt from the stay at home regulations as exercise is an essential part of both physical and mental health.
Courts will be open to the public from 8 a.m. to dusk. daily, weather permitting and players will need to bring their own equipment. Play is restricted to 30 minutes when others are waiting, and play is based on a first-come basis. If conditions are unsafe for play, signs will be posted, and the gates will be locked. Courts will be opened when conditions are safe for play. 
In order to promote safe interaction on the courts and maintain a level of comfort for everyone present, we ask that all players follow the physical distancing standards:
  • Spectators are not permitted
  • Players waiting to enter court must remain 2-metres apart at all times and must wear a mask while waiting
  • Bring your own hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes to be used on all high touch surfaces before, between, and after games
  • Do not share equipment
  • Mask wearing is required at all times while not in-game, and highly recommended during play
  • Always maintain 2-metre distance from all players
  • Consider Singles, Skinny Singles (half-court play) or if drills are the best option to maintain safe distancing
  • If Doubles is played, allow the ball to drop if players are at risk of close contact with another player
  • When serving, each player must use their own ball. Return balls to the owner by paddling ball under the net
For more information, visit burlington.ca/outdoorplay.

News From City Hall
Burlington Fire Department Shares Reminder to Stay Safe While Staying At Home
With everyone at home doing their part to stop the spread of COVID-19, many people are searching for motivation and meaningful tasks to fill their day. Parents may be juggling the competing demands of work and childcare and trying to find activities to keep the whole family occupied.
That’s why the Burlington Fire Department has created a list of simple yet important tasks that can be done by any homeowner or together as a family activity to make your home a safer place:
  • Involve kids in creating a home escape plan.
Break out the art supplies and draw a floor plan of each level of your home. Include two ways out of every room and a safe meeting place outside. Then, practice your plan using made-up scenarios. Setup a video call with grandparents or neighbours to share your family’s plan.
  • Make a family emergency kit.
Discuss and write down a shopping list of all the essential emergency items you need for at least 72 hours. Find a portable container or bag to hold the contents of your kit. A first-aid kit, drinking water, cash, snacks and a flashlight are some basic items to consider.

  • Search. Find. Check. Test.
See if you can spot all the smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms in your home. Do you have at least one smoke alarm on every level and outside of sleeping areas? Is there a CO alarm outside of sleeping areas where you could hear it at night? Test each alarm and replace old batteries. Don’t forget to check for expiry dates on the side or back of the alarm. All battery and electrically-powered alarms expire and must be replaced after 10 years.
  • Find and remove hidden electrical hazards.
Old, worn, frayed cords and overloaded power bars and extension cords are some of the most common causes of electrical fires.
  • Look for outdoor hazards.
Head outside and check exterior vents. Are they free of snow, ice and debris? Clearing vents will prevent the risk of CO buildup inside your home.

Burlington City Council considers the adoption of the Burlington Brownfield Community Improvement Plan
Statutory Public Meeting Information
Date: March 2, 2021
Start Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location: Virtual at www.burlington.ca/calendar by searching for the meeting date for the Community Planning, Regulation and Mobility Committee – Virtual broadcast via 426 Brant St., Burlington, Ontario

What is a CIP?
A Community Improvement Plan or CIP is a tool that allows municipalities to direct funds and implement initiatives towards a specifically defined project area. CIPs are intended to encourage revitalization initiatives and/or stimulate development and redevelopment. Once implemented, a CIP allows municipalities to provide tax assistance, grants or loans to assist in the revitalization of lands and/or buildings within the defined CIP area. Through a CIP municipality can focus public attention on local priorities and municipal initiatives, target areas in transition or in need of repair, rehabilitation, redevelopment, facilitate and encourage community change in a co-ordinated manner; stimulate private sector investment through municipal incentive-based programs.

What are Brownfields?
Brownfields are abandoned, idled or underutilized properties where past actions have caused known or suspected environmental contamination, but where there is an active potential for redevelopment. Brownfields are usually but not always former industrial or commercial properties. Brownfields are often also characterized by building deterioration/obsolescence, and/or inadequate infrastructure. Brownfields can include many uses such as old landfills, petroleum storage facilities, industrial manufacturing uses and warehouses, dry cleaners, former gasoline stations, and even institutional uses such as schools and hospitals. Most brownfields are in urban areas and many are in key areas such as employment areas, downtowns, and major growth centres.

Quick Facts about the Burlington Brownfield CIP
  • The identified properties would be prioritized within a CIP in order to achieve municipal economic development goals. Provincial legislations enable municipalities to adopt a CIP, City Council as authority under Section 17 of the Planning Act to adopt a CIP.
  • Burlington Economic Development Corporation has identified 294 properties within the city that are potentially contaminated due to historical, industrial or commercial land practices. Further studies note that 10% to 30% of the preliminary properties listed could be contaminated.
  • Most of the City’s brownfield sites are located within the City’s Urban Planning Area (Urban Boundary), specifically the employment lands along the Queen Elizabeth Way, Highway 403, Highway 407 and Railway corridors.
  • Burlington needs a supply of shovel ready employment sites to ensure it remains economically competitive, vibrant and offers a complete community where people can both live and work.
