According to a report from Lee Ann Coveyduck, the City's general manager of planning and economic development, the city is getting close to its target for the Farmers' Market renotation:
Allocating a further $1,050,000 to the reconstruction of the Hamilton Farmers' Market would bring the total approved funding to $6,215,000. The estimated total reconstruction cost is $6,500,000.
Also in the report is more information on the development of an artwalk. Describing an existing artwalk in Rochester, Coveydick writes:
The coloured and stamped cement walkway has sculptures, decorative street furniture and other forms of art placed along the roadway that connects the cultural and educational institutions, artists' studios, merchants and entertainment venues.
I've been told by others that this will likely be along King Street, from Gore to Wellington.
Finally, I'm glad to hear they are eyeing other properties for more housing projects. The safety fence went up in front of 187 King East yesterday as they prepare for that project.
