Dear friends and neighbours, welcome to the May 15 2020 edition of Ward 1 News

This past weekend we were able to celebrate a few occasions in our household - both Mother’s day and my birthday. Every few years these two events happen to fall on the same day. I am very fortunate to be surrounded by some very special mothers so I am more than happy to share the day with them. 

Each year I am happy to help organize something special for this group of women and this year I ordered the Snowbirds to fly directly over my house! It may have been an expensive gift but hopefully all of the mothers in Ward 1 were able to benefit. Just wait until next year.  

All kidding aside, I am thankful I was able to celebrate with my family and had my first drive by 5-car parade from my extended family. During these unprecedented times its small gestures such as these that can really make your day, so a huge thank you all.  

As our economy starts to open up again, we will all enjoy a new normal and I encourage people to continue to be cautious and use common sense when visiting public places. Regular hand washing, masks and limiting non-essential trips can all contribute to keeping COVID-19 on the decline.

** Because of the shut down of City Hall, I and my staff are working remotely - we are online every weekday and ready to take your questions and concerns. Please email ward1@burlington.ca, noting that staff are focussing on urgent service requests at this time.

There is much information in this newsletter but if you feel that I have missed something or you would like an update on anything else in Ward 1, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at ward1@burlington.ca

If you would like to stay up to date on news from both at City Hall and in and around Burlington, be sure to Like our Facebook Page , Follow on Twitter or Instagram .

As always, you can contact my office with Ward 1 related issues. We'd be happy to help.

Ward 1 Construction Updates
National Homes (Plains Rd) LP - 484-490 Plains Rd. East
Please note that National Homes will be undertaking site alteration works on the property listed above, this summer.

This work will include the excavation of soil from the property and residents in the surrounding area may notice higher than normal noise levels and truck traffic in the vicinity of this property. This work is being staged to ensure measures are taken to minimize noise and dust to the extent possible.

There will be traffic control measures to carefully guide out trucks, however pedestrian traffic should not be entering either access-way noted in green on the image below. Sidewalk access to the existing businesses will still be available, and should it be required to be closed temporarily, construction staff onsite will assist those needing to access these storefronts.

There will be no parking access at the rear of the buildings, and staff and visitors are asked to use the ample parking space at the front of the plaza just off Plains Road. Again, onsite construction staff will be made available to assist with any issues.

Loading/Garbage pickup times will be arranged with National Homes staff and arrangements will be made to ensure safe loading.

The works are anticipated to start on May 19, 2020 and end on August 1, 2020. Work will occur Monday to Friday between the hours of 7:00am and 5:00pm. The works will be occurring inside the area on site which has already been secured by fencing.

Residents are asked to not attempt to approach the construction site as it is dangerous to both the resident and the operators on site.

Should you have any questions regarding this construction work, please do not hesitate to contact our office at ward1@burlington.ca

NOTE: In the coming months, there will be a full closure along this section of North Shore Boulevard, to accommodate the demolition of the structure. Notification will be provided once additional details are available.
Citizens Making a Difference
Every Friday evening at 7:00pm, residents across Burlington are invited to take part in a City-wide Porch Clap.
This is one of the many ways we can all take part in a celebration of our front-line workers working so hard to keep us safe and healthy.
Join with your household in clapping, banging pots and perhaps cheering emergency vehicles. Send your photos to my office so that we can share with others.
You can also follow online via twitter through our friends at Burlington Frontline Clap @FrontlineClap
Recently, our friends at Frontline Clap collaborated with those at Canada Post to hold a frontline worker parade past several Ward 1 retirement facilities. We have received much feedback about this from the residents, stating that this was a wonderful surprise and treat, especially for the many that had been unable to leave their buildings. Thank you to all who participated!
Burlington residents and businesses have come together during this unprecedented time to support each other, exemplifying the true community spirit of our city. Mayor Meed Ward has created a #COVID19 Wall of Inspiration webpage which highlights some of these inspiring acts of kindness. Please visit https://mariannemeedward.ca/covid-19/wallofinspiration/

The City of Burlington has updated its COVID-19 emergency response guidelines regarding celebratory drive-by parades following a clarification from the Province of Ontario.

The City asks residents to continue to follow the recommended guidelines for drive-by events.

A set of COVID-19 safety instructions have been prepared including recommendations from Halton's Medical Officer of Health that each permitted gardener must comply with to participate. Throughout the season there will be restrictions on when gardeners can visit to limit the number of people in the garden at any one time, who is allowed entry, and sanitization requirements that everyone must be responsible for so that all may garden in the safest way possible.
Updates to Downtown On-street Parking
With downtown Burlington retailers offering curbside pickup, the City of Burlington is making adjustments to on-street parking in the downtown. Changes include converting all on-street paid parking areas to 20-minute parking only.
This applies to the following areas: Caroline Street to Lakeshore Road, Burlington Avenue to Martha Street.
Parking is still free until further notice.
Working with the Downtown Burlington Business Association, the intention of these changes is to aid businesses providing curbside pickup. We encourage drivers to continue to abide by all other signed parking regulations such as no stopping and no parking in loading zones.
How to support small businesses in Burlington
The need has never been greater as our local economy continues to be dramatically weighed down by the daily impacts of COVID-19. Many small businesses have made the decision to close completely, while others are working in reduced capacity. In times of unprecedented hardship our small businesses and independents often experience the brunt of this crisis. Small businesses are an essential part of our community. They are risk-takers by nature; many are family owned and many are residents of the community where their business is located. They are the entrepreneurs that hire our children, sponsor our teams, donate for our events – they are our neighbours.

Team Burlington, which is a collective of the combined talents of The Burlington Chamber of Commerce, Burlington Economic Development, Burlington Downtown Business Association, Aldershot Village BIA and Tourism Burlington, encourages residents to support small businesses online from the safety of their home. They have made seven suggestions:

  • Shop small businesses online: even though their doors may be closed, many businesses are still offering on-line sales and incentives with no-contact shipping/delivery
  • Order take-out or delivery: show your support to restaurants/eateries that are still offering take-away options by ordering at home
  • Purchase a gift card for future use: you may have to wait to use it but it provides cash to the business now when they need it most
  • Submit a positive review online for your favourite business
  • Connect on-line by following a few more local businesses and commenting on their posts
  • Attend an on-line fitness workout: many fitness providers are offering classes from home virtually
  • Support a local not-for-profit/charity: to the extent that you are able, please donate directly to local not-for-profits and charities to ensure that critical support continues to be available to those most vulnerable in our community 

Halton Small Business Center
Whether you are looking to open a new small business, manage or grow your existing business, or are looking for youth entrepreneurship programs, the Halton Region Small Business Centre can help put you on the path to success.
They offer a comprehensive resource centre that includes the tools, training and expertise to help guide your business in the right direction at any stage.

Ward 1 Community News & Resources
Aldershot Food Collection Committee Update:
PLEASE NOTE: ST. MATTHEWS DRIVE-THROUGH DROP-OFF FOOD DRIVES NEED TO CONTINUE! You can donate Mondays or Wednesdays from 12:00pm to 3:00pm

There are so many families with one or both parents laid off work, who are really struggling. They never thought they would be in the position of having to turn to a Food Bank, but what else can they do to feed their children and themselves? Parents often go without, deferring the food to the children, but in these times when everyone is in lockdown, together 24/7, if you’re hungry, tempers flair more easily. Parents need to also be fed and know that there will be food on the table, in order to be able to be the positive, energetic, uplifting and creative parents their kids need right now.

With most other Food Banks closed, thankfully the Burlington Food Bank and the Compassion Society are making food available to anyone across the city, even if someone in the family is working but they still can’t make ends meet. They use their donated money www.burlingtonfoodbank.ca - www.compassionsocietyofhalton.com to purchase fresh food like milk, eggs, butter, fruits, vegetables, meats and any staples they are low on. They depend on the non-perishable donations from our Food Drives to fill out the menus.

And remember, with the kids home all day, they aren’t getting the nutritional snacks and drinks during the day that they got at school and which their small bodies require. Then of course, we can’t forget the babies who need diapers and formula.

In their situation, if you had to choose…. which would you buy, hand soap or a can of tuna? The tuna, to put with noodles and make a whole meal, right? So where does that leave sanitation in the homes where we are trying to fight germs to stay healthy? For a lot of homes, after all these weeks of isolation, cleaning & laundry supplies and toiletries are a luxury! As well as seniors who depend on depends…..

We can all help, by just putting a few extra things in our grocery carts and maybe thinking, when we pick up the couple extra packages of spaghetti that it also needs the sauce and maybe some parmesan cheese to make it a meal, or the noodles to go with the tuna or rice and canned soup with the tuna. We also need to remember, that a lot of the families in need are from other countries, so maybe take a stroll down the European and Asian food aisles?

Thankfully, our dedicated Volunteer Drivers have been taking 3 trunks full, sometimes also loading the back seats, every Monday and Wednesday to either the Food Bank or the Compassion Society, so THANK YOU! But your community needs you to continue.

While you’re dropping off your food, at 126 Plains Rd. E. Burlington, if you or your family need them, take a free fabric mask to help stay safe, complements of the many community Sewers making them for the Gazette Community Face Mask initiative. Proud to say that so far, over 700 masks are either made or in process, to supply to Clients at the Food Bank, free Take-Home Food locations, Seniors Apartments etc……. Definitely more of Community helping Community!

Stay safe and be well, working together, but staying apart, we WILL win!
