Brinkmanship at the Gore: ACT II
Coucillor rushes back from holiday to once again save Heritage:
Cost of Props for the day: $1500
Leverage: 10 more floors
Impact: Huge win for Councillor and developer
Cause given: Miscommunication between city staff and developer ;)
between the company and city staff, said Farr."
We the people of Hamilton, eagerly say: Phew!! close call! our heritage was once again saved by the councillor's leadership.
* "The appearance of construction fencing and demolition equipment on Friday morning came a week and a half after Farr announced the city had come to a compromise that would stave off demolition on the two properties"
* "However, Councillors Jason Farr and Brian McHattie pulled together a hurried meeting with city officials and representatives from Wilson Blanchard, the company that owns the buildings, on Friday afternoon to discuss the issue.
* "The development group has agreed to move the bulldozer from the site and not move forward with any exterior demolition," said Jason Farr, councillor for Ward 2.
* "Wilson Blanchard's move to tear down the building was the result of "a miscommunication"
