Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
The holiday season is here, allowing us to take a moment to reflect on 2016 and look forward to 2017.
It has been a productive year at the City of Burlington, with important progress made on many of our goals for the community. We are working on a new Official Plan, starting engagement on a Transit Plan, finalizing an Innovation and Entrepreneurship strategy, and continuing community building through initiatives like the Neighbourhood Community Matching Fund.
The next year will see further progress on these important projects for our city’s future. I am asking everyone to get involved and help us shape the future of Burlington. There will be many public engagement opportunities throughout the next 12 months, and I hope you will provide your input.
During this holiday season, please remember those who are less fortunate in our community. If you are able, take a moment to donate food, clothing, gift cards or toys to a local charity of your choice. Together, we can make the holiday season brighter for others in our city.
I also encourage everyone to enjoy the many outdoor amenities our city offers during the holiday season. Go for a skate on Rotary Centennial Pond. Take your family tobogganing at Lowville Park. Enjoy a walk along your street and say hello to your neighbours. Take this opportunity to celebrate our city with your loved ones. We have so many reasons to be thankful here in Burlington.
On behalf of Burlington City Council and the Goldring family, I wish you a Merry Christmas and wonderful holiday season. I look forward to continuing to work with you in 2017.
