wow. great piece. Hamilton could certainly learn from these cities. And we should start at Gore Park/south leg of King. Our city is still small and compact enough (the lower city that is) to really create livable, walkable neighbourhoods. Rapid transit to the far end of the Mountain and other suburbs would also help lessen the number of single occupancy cars coming into the city each day (pick a Mountain access some morning and count how many cars have more than 1 person...hardly any). Local streetcar routes could be brought back, starting with areas in need of redevelopment.... think of a line commencing at Park and Robinson, north on James to King William over to Ferguson and back Rebecca to James, up to Duke street and back over to Park. Future extensions could go up to Barton Street and the General Hospital and west to Locke and Dundurn Streets.
