As an added thought, the calculation of square footage of the property should likely include the land + the building sq. footage. This way, developers would be penalized for big lots, regardless of the the sq.footage of the home and condo/apartment owners could not get away with claiming they use small amounts of land. Since police, fire and parks are consumed by people, not acreage, people that live in high rises need to pay for these as well.

Even without these two clarifications, the switch to a system based on square footage would still promote higher quality properties and a better experience for the residents of Hamilton. Anything to move us away from penalizing property owners from wanting to make quality improvements has to be better than the system we have today.
