Great suggestion and I would support such an effort. In Toronto, the city purchased buildings to house artists because of the costs of rents. This bond proposal would be a great way of getting gallery and studio space in the core. I also think the city needs to do something about the taxes on such buildings. Maybe granting a tax holiday if you save important buildings for 10 or 20 years. Finally, I do agree with the other person about citizens having a say over their community even if they are not owners. Forcing individuals to buy bond for a larger community and economic problems can't be the first or only option. City Hamilton is suppose to be looking out for the interests of the citizens, both in the short term and the long.
