Event description
Help shape West Harbour into a series of exciting destinations!

About this Event

It’s taken decades of planning and hard work to get here, and now Hamilton’s West Harbour Waterfront Redevelopment Plan is in full action, construction is underway and new public spaces will be taking shape.

Building on all of the design and consultation work to date, the City of Hamilton is looking for your ideas to assist in the development of a Placemaking & Activation Plan. This Plan will outline program ideas for how the current and future public spaces could be used, and look for ways to make this area a “people-place” in the immediate term, during construction, as well as the eventual long-term.

Join the City, and our consultants from Project for Public Spaces (www.pps.org), for a Community Conversation Meeting. We’ll discuss innovative placemaking approaches that create public spaces which engage people, fostering a strong sense of place that, in turn, contributes to the growing vibrancy of a waterfront for all Hamiltonians.

To help you imagine how these public spaces could be used, the City of Hamilton will temporarily open the site of the future public trail along Piers 5 to 7 at the foot of James Street North. You will be able walk to the water’s edge like never before, follow the path of the future trail and experience a series of placemaking activations that will help inspire ideas for discussion.
