Safer streets, more transport choices
Let's reduce congestion and give people more options for getting around. Safe, connected walking and biking networks, and great public transport are key. It's not about spending more, but changing how we spend our transport budget. Learn more.
Affordable housing, smarter growth
Let's develop an Affordable Housing Plan for Hamilton and build a better balance of housing. We need more high-density housing options that are well-designed and connected to public transport. By building up, not out, we can also strengthen and rejuvenate our city centre.
A healthy environment
Climate change is a defining issue of our time. We can't solve it alone, but it's time we do our part! Local action has huge benefits for local people, and helps to create healthier communities. Let's transform our transport system, encourage sustainable buildings, and increase tree cover. Let's also continue to clean up our waterways - our greatest asset.
