We've got around 30 weekends between Victoria Day and Halloween with seasonable weather. The city has around a dozen BIAs. We're currently managing two Open Streets Janes North a year. We should be able to do the same for the dozen or more BIAs around the city, just for starters.

I suspect that cost is the key argument in favour of the status quo. Based on James North costs, a Hamilton-wide program like this would cost the City around $250K annually. (The City granted $10K to cover the cost of the 2010 OS closure & policing, and as you add days and lengthen stretches of asphalt that are involved, your costs go skyward.)
