LL - your first comment is probably one of the best I've ever read for a quick overview of the ills and opportunities in Hamilton. You're bang on.

Really? Im with you on branding neighbourhoods. I LOVE how Toronto does that. Hamilton needs to adopt the 'village' moniker instead of 'street' all the time. Concession Street, Ottawa Street, Locke Street etc.... Village has a much nicer ring to it - Hess Village, Barton Village etc.... and sums up the vibe and feeling we'd like to see in our neighbourhoods. Also, more 'littles' would be ideal here - Little Europe on James North, Little Asia along Cannon/York, Little Britain on Augusta Street etc....

it helps create identities and can go a long way towards branding a neighbourhood. Not to mention, all the opportunities for public art, logos and promotional material that can be developed with a good village name.
