Smart Growth or Planning Folly? Examining the Proposed Airport Employment Growth District or Aerotropolis

  • Date: Monday, April 26, 2010
  • Time: 7:00 PM
  • Location: Westdale High School Auditorium
  • Address: 700 Main St. W., Hamilton ON (Google Maps)

As deliberations over the size of proposed employment growth lands surrounding the Hamilton airport come to a head this spring, the latest installment of the Hamilton Civic League's monthly Speaker Series examines the facts surrounding this possible expansion of Hamilton's urban boundary.

Panelists include: Richard Koroscil, President and CEO of Hamilton International Airport and current Chair of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce; representatives from Hamiltonians for Progressive Development; former city councillor Dave Braden; residents of the affected area; and other community stakeholders will present their perspective and share information on what the AEGD/Aerotropolis could mean for Hamilton.

Every Hamiltonian is invited to come to hear an explanation of the proposed development and to get answers to their questions.

  • Is there a need for expanded employment lands and which businesses will locate to the area?
  • What are the costs associated with infrastructure expansion and who will pay for them?
  • What effect will this development have on local foodlands and is this significant?
  • Does AEGD/Aerotropolis conform to established development strategies and principles?

This event is part of the Hamilton Civic League's monthly Speaker Series "Hamilton's Halloween Election: Unmasking Candidates and Issues."
