Hi @sparrowswain, I'm glad to hear that you have found that tidbit useful. If I could make a suggestion about getting something similar started for certain areas in Hamilton (downtown, Durand, Strathcona, etc) it would be this: before making a comment at planning committee, reach out to local firms such as Evergreen, Civic Plan, etc. and community associations and explain what the pilot project would entail. The more support you have, the better. Here in Ottawa community groups attend these formal pre consultation meetings and are required to sign a confidentiality agreement so they don't immediately frighten the community with talk about a potential development. I believe this pilot project is making developers more open to meeting with communities, even prior to meeting with the city to discuss project feasibility. I think a project similar to this has great potential in Hamilton.
