Dear friends and neighbours, welcome to the November edition of Ward 1 News!

November has been another very busy month at City Hall with lots of meetings and events to attend. 

As each month passes in this job, I gain more experience and am learning how to be a politician. I have stated since the election that I am not a politician but an entrepreneur that was elected as a decision maker in the city of Burlington. 

In recent past, I have been asked several times how my first year in this role has been. My most common response is - BUSY! Much of what the public assumes we as Councillors are doing is debating development applications as this was a hot topic during the past election. What I have noticed in the past year is that the greatest time commitment of this job is that we need to educate ourselves on the many issues that affect this city and that we are the decision makers for the business of the City of Burlington. 

Committee meetings and preparation for such, is what really takes the most time of our monthly calendar. Reports can total upwards of 800 pages for a meeting that can last for 15 hours over multiple days. As a result, there are times when we cannot get to our emails and phone messages for several days. This may sound like I am complaining but I am not. I always work best when I am busy and I enjoy the daily challenge that this job provides. Council is lucky in that we also have great assistants that help with our communication along the way. 

As always there is much happening in Ward 1. Please connect with me on social media for any news and on-going updates that are happening in our community. If you have suggestions as to how we can improve our methods to inform you, please do not hesitate to provide them by contacting ward1@burlington.ca

Ward 1 Next Ward Meeting - December 17
We are happy to announce our upcoming Ward Meeting - A Year In Review - to be held at St. Matthews on-the-Plains Church, 126 Plains Road East, December 17, 6:30pm-8:30pm

We look forward to sharing with residents a recap of what has occurred in our great city, as well as presenting on future goals and projects.

Presentations will be followed by a question and answer period.

We would love to hear about what it is you would like to know more about - please email any content suggestions to ward1@burlington.ca
Stay Informed! Pre-Application meetings and Development Updates Across the City
New Pre-Application Process
The City of Burlington has adopted a new process that developers will follow, which includes the Pre-Application period. In order to capture community feedback on a proposed development before a development application is submitted to the City, Pre-Application Consultation Meetings with the community are held by the developer before any applications are submitted. 

Notices with details about the meeting are prepared by the developer and sent by Canada Post in advance of the meeting date to properties and businesses within 120 metres of the proposed development location.

At this point, the Councillor will be informed and will share information on social media, or via newsletter (if time permits given publication schedules). The development, as yet unsubmitted to city staff, will not have its own page on the city website, though the notice of meeting itself will be posted to the Get Involved calendar. To view and register for updates from this calendar, please visit https://bit.ly/33mpBrx

At the consultation meeting, the property owner shares the proposed plans with the community and gathers their input and feedback to make any adjustments to the proposal before a development application is submitted to the City.

Because this is a new process, there is bound to be some confusion. In the past, residents would get mail outs and meeting notices after the application had been submitted and perhaps considered by staff and council.

Residents, upon hearing about a Pre-Application meeting now, may wonder why there was no previous mention of the development, nor information on the city’s website or in Councillor Newsletters. The pre-application process, including the initial public meeting is the first touch point in a series of points from the earliest concept idea of a new development through to the completion of a development. 

NOTE that no decisions have been made either by city staff or by council – in fact, council members also attend this meeting to listen to the developer presentation – the council member may not offer any opinion on the development at this time, as they would need to hear from staff with regards to policies and requirements to be considered with regards to the site in question. Residents are encouraged to bring any questions with them to the meeting so that they may present them to the developer.

City planning staff will also be available at these meetings to discuss policy only and no opinions on the proposal can be offered as there are no formal documents submitted at this time.  

More information on the Development Application Process is available here:  https://www.burlington.ca/en/services-for-you/understanding-the-development-application-process.asp - you may subscribe to this page, as well as development pages sorted by ward – see here https://www.burlington.ca/en/services-for-you/Current-Development-Projects.asp

I hope this sheds some light on the development process now in place for any new development in Burlington. 

Changes to the Development Process - How to receive updates
As a reminder, the City has made the following positive changes to help share information and provide status updates on developments, from the application stage through to construction, if approved, including any accompanying road restrictions.

1. Find information about development projects online at burlington.ca/developmentprojects

  • Development projects are organized by City wards
  • Not sure which ward you live in? Use the interactive map to locate new development projects in your neighbourhood
  • Status information at the top of each web page identifies which stage of the planning process the development application is in, e.g. received, under review, on hold, appealed, approved, or refused.
  • Features details of the proposed development, including concept renderings
  • Easily locate contact information for the City planner managing the application
  • Subscribe to any web page to receive email notifications when changes to the development application web pages are made.

NOTE: If you subscribe to a Ward's Current Development Page, you will receive a notification if any NEW developments are added. For notifications on specific developments, you need to visit each development page and subscribe to the page itself.

2. Updates to layout and design of public notifications

  • Once a development application is received by the City, a development notification letter is sent to all property owners within 120 metres of the proposed development. The City has made updates to these letters, to make them easier to understand, including clear information about what is proposed and how you can share your feedback with the City.
  • Once the City has received a completed development application, the applicant is required to install a development application notice sign on the proposed development site. The City has updated the design of these signs to make contact information and key details about the proposed development easier to understand and find.

3. Development application meetings posted to City calendar online

  • Community and Council meetings related to development applications are shared on the Burlington events calendar under “Get Involved".
  • Subscribe to the calendar to receive a weekly summary of upcoming meetings by email, sent every Thursday between 4 and 4:30 p.m. or follow the City on Twitter at @cityburlington

4. Find information about construction in your neighbourhood online

  • To assist residents with questions, the City created a new web page called Construction in your neighbourhood - https://www.burlington.ca/en/services-for-you/construction-in-your-neighbourhood.asp. Get information about planned road, sewer and water main projects and find out who to call if you have questions about construction activity where you live.
  • Once a development has been approved, the developer is responsible for the physical work around the site. Details regarding the timing and details of construction is shared by the developer and posted on the City’s website on the development project web pages at burlington.ca/developmentprojects

5. Find information about road restrictions and closures online

  • Read about current and future road closures and restrictions or view on an interactive map of the city. https://bit.ly/33iR0e9
  • Sign up to receive email notifications when new road closure notices are posted https://bit.ly/2DkSzO4

Burlington Leaf Pickup Program
Our office has received many questions and complaints about the announced reduction, and then cancellation of service of the Loose Leaf Pickup program to certain areas of the city this fall. 

Unfortunately, due to the sudden, early snow fall and subsequent freezing temperatures that allowed the snow to remain for 10 days, we lost valuable time that was dedicated to the leaf program. 

This decision of a service reduction was communicated to Council on November 19 and was not a Council voted-on decision. Council members suggested many alternatives to total cancellation but were met with many obstacles.

The vehicles (and staff) that are used for leaf collection are the same ones that need to be equipped for snow removal and salting.  With the early snowfall and trucks not ready, the city had to contract out the snow removal for the November 11 storm. The subsequent freezing of leaf piles made it impossible to pick them up even if equipment were available. 

The city has announced that the second pickup of loose leaves in Zones 1 and 4 will not resume. Zones 2 and 3 will resume as they had not yet had a first pick up. These areas will only be completed if weather permits. There is a great risk of running the program too late in the season due to the need to convert the trucks into our snow plow fleet. 

We have asked the Region of Halton to assist with our pick up and they are unable to provide additional staff or equipment. They did however extend their yard waste pick up to December 20 th, provided that the leaves are in bags.

It is advised that residents bag leaves if able or mulch them. Residents can also leave the leaf piles at the roadsides, so long as they are not on the road or in catch basins.  Many sources suggest that mowing over fallen leaves, turning them to mulch can provide many benefits to a lawn. We do not want anyone to risk injury by attempting to move leaves if they are unable.

The City has committed to the following methods of communicating this change:
  • Posts on the City's social media & website
  • Residents in Zones 1 and 4 will all receive letters through Canada Post informing them of the changes
  • Online ads in the Burlington Post and ad in this week’s newspaper
  • Possibly 4 roadside mobile signs at arenas

We recognize and understand the difficult challenge that many residents face when the leaf collection program is not completed as originally planned. The leaf program as a whole is currently under review to determine if it will exist in future at all. Most municipalities around us have done away with the program because it is a duplication of service with the Region of Halton. Burlington is currently in the process of having the program audited and Council will be presented with options this winter. Your input will also be included in the consideration. 

To add some clarity to Ward 1 constituents, Aldershot is Zone 3 for leaf pickup and Tyandaga is Zone 1 (please see Zone Map above).

UPDATE November 26:

  • The leaf collection program began on November 4 and is scheduled for completion on December 13.
  • All dates are weather dependent. The snow storm of November 11 resulted in 7 work days without leaf collection. The schedule was amended resulting in one collection for Zone 1, none for Zone 4, and one collection for Zone 2 and 3.
  • Further winter weather currently forecast for this weekend may cause delays or cancellations to leaf collection dependent upon the amount of snow received.
  • Staff are evaluating the program including an assessment after leaf collection of the areas not completed and will provide options for further clean up during the winter period if weather permits, or a spring pick up for consideration by council.

For more information on the leaf collection program, please visit https://www.burlington.ca/en/services-for-you/Leaf-Collection.asp
Cootes Paradise Sewage Spill - Statement from Mayor Meed Ward
Please read the following statement from the office of Mayor Meed Ward:

Burlington, Ont.—Nov. 26, 2019—“Like residents of Burlington, Hamilton and neighbouring municipalities, I am shocked and disturbed to hear of the massive sewage spill into the Cootes Paradise watershed. Like many, we are left asking how such a thing could have happened over such a long period of time, what the impact is to the environment and our residents, and why the public, and partnering municipalities and agencies were not notified. 

We are aware that the Ministry of Environment, Conservation & Parks is investigating, and we look forward to a full understanding and public reporting of what occurred. However, we shouldn’t have to wait to hear about sewage spills at the conclusion of a Ministry of Environment investigation; this is an environmental and public health issue that needs to be addressed collectively right away. 

There are more questions than answers at this point, and Burlington will be requesting a full response to these questions on behalf of all residents impacted in our area communities including: 

  1. What is the human health impact to residents living around the Bay, or who have enjoyed recreation at the Bay? What is the impact to the ecology of the Bay, and plants, wildlife? How will the impacts of the spill be remediated?  In this endeavour, Burlington stands ready to assist, as we have in the past on the Randle Reef cleanup ($2 million contribution) and Cootes to Escarpment eco-park initiatives. We need these answers immediately. 
  2. How can we ensure this never happens again? How did this happen over a long period of time without being detected and immediately addressed? Do we have appropriate monitoring protocols in place to test water, raise red flags and prompt investigations when contaminant levels are elevated?  
  3. Is there provincially mandated public reporting of any spills that affect air, land or water, and if not, why not?  

We will be seeking that the province implement immediate mandatory public reporting of any spill that has the potential to contaminate land, air or water. In the meantime, I commit to voluntary reporting and to look into whistleblower policy protections; I will encourage area municipalities and regions to do the same. 

Had this been in place, Burlington and agencies with a role and stake in Cootes Paradise would have been immediately notified of the spill, along with the public. We should not have to learn about contamination of our shared water from media reports.

As we go forward, looking for answers, preventative action and remediation, Burlington stands ready to help. 

The City of Burlington and the City of Hamilton are neighbours and our friendship and history of working collaboratively together goes back many years. We are also partners in many formal areas, such as the cleanup and remediation of Randle Reef, our shared work of traffic management in the Waterdown Area, and as part of the Bay Area Climate Change Office, to name just a few. Given this relationship, along with our shared watershed and potential impact to residents, it is unacceptable that we (and the public) were not been notified of this spill in a timely and direct manner. 

We are focused on getting answers, making sure something like this doesn’t happen again and doing what is necessary to cleanup the mess in our shared watershed.  
I’ve had an opportunity to speak with Councillor Lloyd Ferguson, Chair of the Public Works committee and member of the Royal Botanical Gardens and Hamilton Conservation Authority Boards, as well as Maureen Wilson, Deputy Mayor, to share our concerns and questions and formally ask for the release of all documents to the public and ourselves. 

I have a scheduled called with Mayor Fred Eisenberger to share the same information and request.

As we did before with the clean up of Randle Reef, the City of Burlington is ready to help our neighbour and partner for the greater good. The environment, clean water and clean air are not confined to narrow municipal boundaries and the impact and resolution of this issue isn’t either.”
Metrolinx Advocacy Request - Aldershot GO Station
Our office continues to receive frequent calls regarding the parking (or lack thereof) at Aldershot GO station. The over flow vehicles then take up residence on neighbouring streets, parking illegally. This results in frustrated commuters, AND frustrated residents.

This issue dates back years, and has been acknowledged by both previous council and City staff.

Burlington staff encourage active transportation alternatives, such as taking the bus, biking or walking to the station as opposed to driving, and while this is a suitable alternative for commuters residing in Aldershot, it does not solve the issue for those coming from the west (ie Hamilton), looking to take the train towards Toronto. Local residents looking to travel later in the day find they must travel across the city to find suitable parking, and have come to feel that this Station is not adequately serving their community.

A plan had been in place to add 450 additional spots to the Go Parking lot at Aldershot station in 2018, however the expansion was put on hold and has yet to materialize. In response, I am bringing forward an Advocacy Request on behalf of residents and commuters to complete the expansion as soon as possible. This will hopefully alleviate the illegal parking in and around Aldershot neighbourhoods and ease the ability of commuters to find suitable parking.

The Advocacy Letter has been prepared, and attached to a staff direction which has been included in the December 3 Planning and Development Agenda. Council are being asked to agree with the letter and sign as indication of support. Once this has been (hopefully) completed, it will then be delivered to Metrolinx for consideration. I will keep you updated on the progress in Council, followed by the progress with Metrolinx. If you have any questions, please contact me at ward1@burlington.ca
Private Tree Bylaw - Tabled
At Council on October 28, the Roads, Parks and Forestry Report RPF-15-19 (proposed city-wide private tree bylaw) was tabled, to be considered at the Committee of the Whole meeting to be held on December 2, 2019.

A thank you to all those who completed the Private Tree Bylaw survey, and public engagement opportunities. Input from residents is being reviewed and a report will go to Council in October. The results and the report will be shared on the
Private Tree Bylaw page once they are ready.

You can visit the project page at https://www.getinvolvedburlington.ca/privatetree

Traffic Calming & Traffic Signal Updates - Ward 1
Transportation Services Staff have been very busy reviewing speed and traffic in several Ward 1 areas to determine if Traffic Calming measures are warranted. The following are results of some studies recently completed:

Bonnieview Avenue, Parkhill Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard - 40km/h Speed Limit Installation
City staff have reviewed Bonnieview Avenue, Parkhill Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard to determine if a 40km/h speed limit is warranted. The results of staff’s review indicate a 40km/h speed limit is warranted based on the Council approved Speed Limit Policy and the necessary 40km/h speed limit signage will be installed in the next few months

North Shore Boulevard – Maple Avenue to QEW West Off Ramp - 50km/h Speed Limit Installation
City staff have reviewed North Shore Boulevard between Maple Avenue and the QEW West Off Ramp to determine if a 50km/h speed limit is warranted. The results of staff’s review indicate a 50km/h speed limit is warranted based on the Council approved Speed
Limit Policy and the necessary 50km/h speed limit signage will be installed in the next few months.

Lockhart Road Traffic Calming Warrant Review
As per the Traffic Calming Policy, a minimum 3 of the 6 technical warrant criteria needs to be met to warrant the installation of traffic calming measures. Vehicle speeds and traffic volumes for 24 hours a day over a 7 day period were collected using automated traffic recorders. The results indicate that Lockhart Road does not warrant the installation of traffic calming measures, at this time. Notwithstanding the above, the City of Burlington in partnership with the Halton Regional Police Service offers other programs to help address speeding and aggressive driving concerns. For more information on the results of these studies, please contat ward1@burlington.ca

New Traffic Signals at Plains Rd & Downsview
In your travels along Plains Road you may have noticed recent traffic signal construction works at the above noted intersection. As part of the Affinity Condo Development, Transportation Services are upgrading the existing Intersection Pedestrian Signal (IPS) at the subject intersection to a full traffic signal. 

The IPS was installed many years ago to facilitate controlled pedestrian crossings of Plains Road. The IPS would only stop traffic on Plains Road when pedestrians were crossing, and Downsview Drive motorists treat the intersection as a typical stop-controlled location. In recent years we’ve received requests from motorists on Downsview Drive to upgrade the IPS to a full traffic signal. Now completely installed, this is a good news story for both Downsview Drive residents & travelles as well as the future residents in the Affinity Condos. 

If you have concerns about speeding or questions about traffic signals, please contact ward1@burlington.ca

News From City Hall
Frequently Asked Questions:
The traffic lights at Maple and Thorpe show an advanced green arrow, even when there are no cars waiting to turn - can this be corrected?
Transportation staff have shared that when Maple avenue was repaved, the original sensors which triggered the advanced green arrow indicators were removed. Once the repaving was completed, the new sensors had not been calibrated. This work has now been completed
