This bid started out as a downtown focused, city building exercise

There are many people in this Amalgamated City of Hamilton who would take issue with that statement.

I would be happy if Hamilton backed out of the Games altogether and focused on city building initiatives that were one of the Pan Am's selling points after all.

You're right, a major impetus has been lost.

But I have to say this: I believe the focus would have been much different were there not 'outlying' interests. (Yes, I'm talking about Hamilton never having had its needs diluted by the priorities of peripheral entities. By way of amalgamation.)
