Hooray for Hamilton City Council! In an era when cities are trying to use resources properly and slowly curb the long-held practice of relying on taxpayer subsidies in order to build low density, debt producing sprawl subdivisions, some last minute negotiations have led to an already painfully low-density project being adjusted even lower!
Great work folks. It's no wonder civic leaders from all over the world come to our fine city to learn about the future...yeah, that'll be the day.
How can we possibly be lowering densities in projects that are already about as low as it gets? Before city council begins allowing changes like this, I think we need to see clear proof (preferably provided by someone with no stake in this project) that smaller house lots will devalue homes in the area. Sounds like a good old fashioned case of NIMBYism if you ask me.
Thank goodness the province has legislated 'Places to Grow' and other Smart Growth initiatives. Left to its own devices (and leadership) I shudder to see what Hamilton would look like in 20 years.
