I want to start by saying how excited I am for this project and that I support it wholeheartedly. My only concern is the section of rail that will run through the Global Village. I'm familiar with Main St. in Buffalo that was closed to vehicle traffic and was an absolute ghost town. Buffalo is itself going through a bit of a renaissance and is in the midst of converting Main St. back to mixed transportation use. I've also wandered the Spark St. area in Ottawa, which is itself a dead-zone at times. Are there any examples of a successful closed street area? What would Hamilton need to do different from the two areas mentioned? Wellington to Catherine is a fairly long stretch, I'd hate to see the area suffer.
