Councillor Brian McHattie (Ward 1) plans to introduce a motion [PDF link] at today's Committee of the Whole calling on Councillors to look at expanding the West Hamilton Innovation District to include the CP Rail Yards currently under consideration as the site for a Pan Am stadium.
The motion reads:
Whereas, the McMaster Innovation Park and West Hamilton Innovation District is deemed to be small by research park industry standards, and;
Whereas, Hamilton economy of the future will be based on innovation and high technology industries, proving many well-paid jobs, and;
Whereas, the CPR yard at Aberdeen and Longwood is now available for sale and re-purposing.
That staff investigate expanding the West Hamilton Innovation District zoning plan to include the CPR yard lands at Aberdeen Avenue and Longwood Road.
At today's meeting, staff will present their latest report on the progress of the stadium negotiations.
