Strathcona Fall Food Drive

Join the Strathcona Community Council Executive and members of the Strathcona community as we once again collect food to help re-stock the shelves at local food banks.  Volunteers will be coming around to every home in the neighbourhood to gather non-perishable food items between the hours of 10:00 am and 12:00 pm.  If you are not going to be home between these hours please feel free to leave the items in a bag on your front steps or porch and make clear the bag is for the food drive.  If you would like to help out please meet at Victoria Park (in the Strathcona Avenue North parking lot) at 9:30 am.  For more information contact  strathconacommunitycouncil@gmail.com. Many thanks to First Student Canada for generously donating buses and drivers for this...

Light Rail Transit Development Discussions

L O V E Y O U R C I T Y YOU’RE INVITED! B-Line Corridor Land Use Study Design Workshop Public Presentation What should new development along the B-line corridor look like? How should it relate to existing neigbourhoods?oHow The City of Hamilton is undertaking a land use planning process along the B-Line Corridor from McMaster to Eastgate Square in conjunction with planning, engineering and design studies for a Light Rail Transit (LRT) system. Citizens and local architects will be working together over the next few weeks to create visions of possible future development along the B-Line corridor. They will be developing six conceptual designs for buildings and public areas at six select locations along the corridor, two in Ward 1. You are invited to view the designs, learn about how they relate to the surrounding neighbourhood and to provide comments. The results of this process, including your comments, will inform new polices on uses, building heights, densities and urban design elements.
