looks like an exciting night taking shape at the ASmith household. Don't get your login/passwords mixed up.

The beauty of the way Ryan has set up RTH is that all previous content is searchable and even organized in fancy categories like "light rail" "downtown" etc.... There's pretty much everything one needs to know about the effects of LRT on a city on RTH already. I should warn you however, that even in the myriad of pages of LRT articles you're about to read, I don't recall anyone calling it the 'saviour' of Hamilton. As far as it's impact in revitalizing downtown and urban neighbourhoods, along with decent planning practices (ie -no drive thru Hortons along the LRT line) higher densities, and relaxed zoning rules along the corridor, LRT is absolutely the best option to accelerate downtown renewal.

Oh, and I wasn't kidding. Death and Life is a must-read book. You'll be shocked to find out that a lot more is involved in the death and life of cities than whether the tax rate is 1.7% or 1.2%.
