Gary Howe, along with most of our current commission, has worked successfully over the past few years to make TC a more inclusive, connected community. He deserves another term.

WeSurely we can make more effective use of this land", part 1: found at the intersection of James and Strachan, this enormous pile of cracked concrete has some real potential to be better than the nothing that it is today.

Mature trees shield the lot from views of the train tracks to the south and anchors the land within the North End, a charming district. West Harbor GO, Bayfront Park, downtown Hamilton, and Pier 4 offer transit and amenities to the area. The North End already has a variety of housing options and densities, and has need of local commercial operations outside of the summer months.

These sorts of lots are signs both of how badly we have squandered land within our cities and of how much potential our cities still have for positive reforms. Incremental, sensitive development on this lot and thousands like it is a key step to creating strong towns. What do you want to see in this spot?
