I very much like the idea of investing in and redeveloping an institution and neighbourhood that we already have. No, any housing developments that are created won't resemble what would be built at the WH, but...we're just not there yet. It's still a got great neighbourhood vibe and historic charm. And when there's so much adversity about an issue...it drains the spirit as well as the pocketbook.

On a positive note, all those wonderful design plans a la White Star et al sure got people's juices flowing, whether they be creativity or funding. I think condo's and an amphitheatre and ent't district are on the horizon, just not this one. And as much as I'd also love to see the beach revitalized, maybe it's just not the right time.

The downtown is revitalizing itself, with or without the Pan Am Games (which I think is an excellent opportunity for Hamilton to get some much-needed attention).

I am worried about the price tags the IWS re-design incites; my gawd, from whom are we receiving quotes?
