Thanks for the clarification Jason, I am sure the new systems would be much more quieter and smaller in scale. And thanks for all the pictures - sure is an inspiration for local architects and developers!

We could most definitely learn from Portland's design sense at every level - and hopefully the new infill development planning in Hamilton takes its cues from such examples you are sending down.

Although, the latest news of Barbara Hall's escapade with human rights and zoning hangs like a dark cloud over Hamilton, and may well gut all the dreams and aspirations we may have for a meaningful redevelopment of Hamilton's lower city.

Also, if you have some time there, would you be able to look into how Portland has dealt with the issue of poverty and affordable housing in its downtown...(i.e. does Portland have a 'poverty industry' that has impacted its urban form and life in anyway?)
