I would be happy if the rest of council just let those wards that want to start making changes (e.g. 1 and 2) get on with it, for example by using the area weighting money, instead of debating the changes to death and worrying about how their residents will react to changes in other wards.

Council doesn't tend to micro-manage urban design changes in Stoney Creek, Winona or Ancaster. They should give local residents and businesses the benefit of the doubt that they might actually know what will work in their own neighbourhoods!

Besides, "carping on" is part of building change: look at the restart of heritage designations by council and Cannon street bike lane. And many of the people contributing to this site are also working on the ground through neighbourhood associations, with their councillor and with participatory budgeting to drive changes at street level.

What are you doing?
