Sustainability website TreeHugger has posted an article on Hamilton's recent foray into tactical urbanism.
Casting the story in terms of the manufactured downtown-vs-suburbs crisis due to the Harris Government's amalgamation of cities like Hamilton and Toronto with their suburbs, author Lloyd Alter sketches out the story of the Herkimer/Locke guerrilla bumpouts and then asks: "Can a city change?"
(Sidenote: now I want to read Emily Talen's book City Rules: How Regulations Affect Urban Form.)
As I wrote when The Atlantic Cities covered the story, it's nice to see Hamilton held as an example of how a city can get it right for a change.
