Ryan,
I was surprised to hear you tried to contact Save Our Waterfront - unsuccessfully. I have no record of any email, phone call, Twitter or Facebook posting from you.
Sorry we didn't get a chance to connect because I would have corrected a misperception communicated by Walter Mulkewich.
Save Our Waterfront is not opposed to "intensification." There is a huge range of intensification - two-story townhouses replacing single storey buildings is but one example.
Save our Waterfront supports the right kind of intensification in the right place, and feel, as Walter does, that 10-15 storeys in this are of our waterfront is the wrong kind intensification. Low-rise buildings, and townhouses or joined businesses - I think a lot of people in Burlington would support that, particularly if the prime heritage buildings in that area could be preserved. And this type of construction qualifies as "intensification."
We're grateful City Hall listened to our request for a citizen's advisory committee on the waterfront, and we know many creative ideas will come from residents on the best way to intensify this area.
Marianne Meed Ward,
Chair
