Dear Neighbours,

I hope you are making the most of these summer days and nights. I wanted to provide you with a brief update on a few items:

More Community Greenspace

If you haven’t already, stop by the corner of Emerald and Barton to enjoy the newest depaved corner in the Barton Village neighbourhood, led by Green Venture. Thank you to everyone who helped. This project enables better natural stormwater filtration and helps cool our urban environment – merging climate actions with good placemaking.

Safer Streets Update

Our roadways must be built for safety, not speed. In 2022, drivers on our streets have killed twelve people and seriously injured many others. In the face of so many devastating injuries and deaths, I remain hopeful that we can get things right in Hamilton.
In July, Council approved the Complete Streets Design Manual which sets a new standard for every reconstruction, repaving and new roadway construction across the City. At its core, it is about design that creates more liveable streets that achieve zero deaths, injuries and also helps cool our urban environment.

The first roadways in Ward 3 that will see this design manual applied include Wilson, Sherman, Barton, Main and King. These principles also informed the Ward 3 Comprehensive Complete Streets Report which recommends over 128 safety enhancements to our neighbourhood roads.  I allocated nearly half a million dollars to get the ball rolling on implementing many of the recommendations. In response to safety issues on Wentworth, I also moved to reduce the speed to a 30km school zone at Cathy Wever.

Woodlands Park Spray Pad Update

The timeline of the new spray pad for Woodlands Park has been adjusted from construction to begin summer of 2022, to beginning in fall of 2022. For more information, please visit
