Mayor Goldring and Councillor Craven had a great opportunity recently to visit the Next Door Social Space on Plains Road. This terrific community service agency hosts a variety of programs including a bike repair and give-a-way service, community kitchen, employment assistance and other services. It is sponsored by Forestview Church.

Nuisance signs

September 14, 2016 in Frontpage, Miscellaneous by Heather Mace

The City has a new program to fight against unsightly and illegal signage on City Streets. This is a particular problem along the Plains Road corridor. Often these signs can be found on utility poles and public boulevards. Now, you can report this clutter via the online service www.burlington.ca/servicerequests. You can upload a picture of the sign with your report and use the interactive map to follow the progress of your request. Signs that are illegal will be removed. You can use the same site to report potholes, broken traffic signs, street light problems, graffiti and coyote sightings.
