Common sense, which has yet to arrive in Hamilton when it comes to basic planning. The Plains Rd example above is bang on. They are doing what we should be doing on York, Queenston, Upper James etc... Instead, planning staff were recently recommending new developments on York in a high rise fashion with mega parking lots blasted into the surrounding neighbourhood. Plains Rd shows how successful developments can include much less parking and mixed-use instead of stand-alone slab buildings. Most cities in North America are trending this way except a notable few. As always, Hamilton is one of the few clinging to the 60's
