I am pleased to see the complete streets approach as mentioned by Jason. I have to wonder though about his comments with regard to benefits for the Ancaster CBD.

As DowntowninHamilton indicates in his comment there isn't that much there. Perhaps the redevelopment of the street will attract more businesses, but where would they go?

Trouble is, Ancaster doesn't really have much of a central business district; that was pre-empted by the Meadowlands power centre, which of course presents a complete antithesis to what's been done on the new section of Wilson Street.

Is this a case of too little, too late or can we hope that this shining example will be an inspiration for the numerous streets in Hamilton badly in need of a fresh approach?
