Waterfront Hotel Planning Study is due by March 1

There are still two days left to provide feedback on a February 15 virtual open house that laid out some emerging concepts of what the site should look like. At that open house City and study consultants from The Planning Partnership presented the emerging preferred concept plan for the site, followed by a question & answer period.

A recording of the meeting can be found on this page under “Recordings“. The presentation is now available.

Burlington is still  looking for public feedback on the emerging preferred concept (2022) which will provide guidance on built form, the public realm as well as mobility and access for the Waterfront Hotel site.

Feedback can be submitted by Emailing staff lead link)
