Hey Tdottransplant,

Your situation sounds similar to mine :) I moved into the same neighbourhood - albeit on the other side of Gage Park - and for many of the same reasons (PS You are NORTH of the escarpment not south! One of the many nuances of Hamilton is that it is upside down :) ). I witnesed the inaction of City Hall for 6 years and decided it was time to move on, back to Toronto.

There are some good things happening in the Hammer - walk along James Street North and see the revitalization taking place - and there are some wonderful hidden gems to be unearthed (check out the City's waterfalls and the Dundas trails), but I've always felt that the downtown is the biggest missing peice of the puzzle.

If we could get some 2-way streets going, an LRT and a pedestrianized Gore Park that would get things moving in the right direction. Why don't you see if you can get your voice heard while you're giving it a go? Some of the councilors are very receptive to ideas and the Spec is always looking for informed letters and OpEds. There's always hope!

Thanks for your comments

Ben
