|Cox-Graham, Brenda||No||Hamilton is definitely not doing enough to revitalize city spaces. They should be cleaned up and made "shovel ready", as the builders say, to encourage new business to utilize these lands. Various forms of financial incentives could be offered. Some of it should be utilized for low income housing units. Small but good quality and carefully monitored. Small businesses should be encouraged especially with small start-up loans and help with understanding the risks and how to avoid them.|
|Ferguson, Lloyd||Yes||I believe we doing enough, based on the number of building permits which have been appoved in those areas. Also ERASE provides exception from development charges and a 10-year tax break for those neighbourhoods.|
