Welcome to the Core Residents Group
The Core Residents are a growing group of Burlington Downtown residents that share a common love for their downtown, city and quality of life.
This is a group of people that have come to believe that the issues of rapid intensification, massive building growth and its associated side effects are affecting the quality of our lives and the way we live and relate to our area.
Many people are saddened by recent decisions by the city to allow massive buildings despite the input from residents and decisions of previous councils to limit growth and building heights. Many are feeling squeezed by builds that will shade their streets, obstruct their views, constrict flexible affordable business and cultural spaces and forever alter the patterns of life downtown.
We know that Burlington is a self sustaining city built on entrepreneurship and commerce but also enjoys the legacy of a strong community culture consisting of mixed backgrounds, ethnicities, incomes and perspectives. We know that many of the issues that are now pressuring the downtown will negatively affect this delicate balance and cultural legacy if we don’t make an effort to change this trend.
We believe the pattern of proposed overbuilding will create a permanent negative legacy.
The Core Residents Group have come together on common ground to to work together, with the city and developers to arrive at building a sensible future amidst intensification fever.
