My Priorities.

Pathways to a renewed and vibrant Hamilton:

Economy

* Create new jobs and develop new forms of work across all urban, suburban & rural communities.
* Introduce incentive based sustainability tools to lower taxes and promote relevant growth.
* Accelerate local & foreign direct investments to spur economic, cultural and transit sustainability.

Environment

* Develop innovations in planning, zoning and by-laws to promote a sustainable quality of life.
* Lay the foundations for a sustainable eco-city and develop infrastructure for a clean-green economy.

Education

* Build innovative educational and cultural institutions in the lower city through private investments.

Efficiency

* Implement public accountability tools for system-wide transparency and operational efficiencies.

These focused priorities will reset the direction of Hamilton towards economic and ecological sustainability; and set a rapid pace for the rejuvenation of our economy and the urban environment.

Specific initiatives designed around these priorities will build up the economic vitality of all our community business districts, and provide new directions for relevant growth around the airport and on urban brownfields, including the waterfront.

InnoHa! -- InnovateHamilton: {a renewed state of spirit, leading to...} sustainable rejuvenation + {made-in-Hamilton solutions} for economic and cultural rebirth.

InnoHa! is built on the four pillars of: Economy, Environment, Education & Efficiency.

In the spirit of open source / open platform — InnovateHamilton — InnoHa! will have a publicly accessible Citizens office located in the Mayor's office to generate collaborative innovations in living, working and producing locally.

To enable the transition of Hamilton into a sustainable eco-city, one of the key first-principles is: to eliminate all stress causing events among our residents that arise from direct or indirect interactions with city policies and processes; and remove all obstacles to economic prosperity, healthy living and the peaceful enjoyment of the city by its residents, visitors and guests.

InnoHa! is about initiating desired changes that we all seek in our city by bringing all our diverse communities together in trust — to implement sustainable ways of living, working and producing locally

I'll be casting my vote for real change. I am excited at the thought of some or all of the innitiatives mentioned on your site, to be incorporated into 'my' city.

One can only hope, Hamilton has a Calgary-style upset up our sleeves.
