Three months a go I wrote a letter to the city stating that when Starbucks moved in, we would know that the city of Hamilton was moving forward.

Starbucks is a destination. Locke Street is becoming a destination - a place that people will go out of their way to get to. Hamilton lacks destinations - places that draw people on a regular basis. The life we have seen in Locke Street and James Street North over the pasyt year is a testament to Hamilton building destinations.

Places such as the Lister Block, the Farmer's market, and other pending projects need to be created as destinations - places that are so great - that they draw people.

When the people come - then the city will move forward.
