I think public meetings are a good way to collect feedback (if they're held at times when people can attend). As you say, though, the reciprocity is the problem. The current processes all act to "gather" information but then who knows what happens with it (I had a hard time finding this out). I find it frustrating when the lived experiences of people in neighbourhoods are discounted and when residents are treated as if their "non-expert" views aren't relevant. To a few concerns, the City's response has been to discount those concerns and to tell us that the City is not "required" to do something to mitigate them. Thanks for pointing to Burlington, by the way, I'll check that out when time permits.
