Someone please help me out.
Is a velodrome a cycling facility? Or a parking lot?
That's all these guys ever talk about.
In many ways I want the velodrome to locate near the harbour even more than the stadium. It is hoped to become a mixed use recreational and sport facility after the games.
All new sports facilities and rec centres in Hamilton these days are built in the burbs. This is our chance for a new showpiece facility at the water in the heart of the city.
One thing this whole Pan Am process has shown is that the bad policies and development patterns in Hamilton run a lot deeper than just an inept council.
In this case, council is right and yet are being pulled to invest more into sprawl instead of taking a chance for legacy building on dirty brownfields in the heart of the city. It's going to be a looooong road back for Hamilton when such backwards thinking runs so deep in our city.
