A message from Hamilton Police A/Sgt.Tim O’Keefe, Division One Crime Manager:
There has been an increase in residential break and enters in the Kirkendall neighbourhood. The majority of these incidents have a common thread, entry was gained via an opened ground floor window or door. Residents are being urged to be more diligent about securing doors and windows while their homes are unattended or while they are in the yard. Also, don’t leave valuables lying around in plain sight. These are crimes of opportunity, let’s take the opportunity out of the equation and make this problem go away.
Thanks, and please speak with your neighbours who don’t have access to computers.

A message from Brian McHattie’s office:
The City has embarked on a ten-year Public Art Master Plan, which it is developing in consultation with the public, community arts organizations, arts enthusiasts and City staff.
The plan will include a shared vision for public art in Hamilton and will identify and prioritize ideas, sites, and opportunities for the integration of public art into public places throughout the city. The draft plan will be presented to city Council for approval in the Fall 2007.
How to provide input into the Public Art Master Plan:
You are encouraged to provide your input in one of two ways:
- Attend a workshop
Attend one of six public workshops taking place across Hamilton in early June. These will include a presentation about public art and discussions about possible locations and recommendations for types of public art.
The closest workshop for Ward 1 will take place on Tuesday, June 5 from 6 – 9 p.m. at the Coach House at Dundurn Castle – 610 York Boulevard, Hamilton
- Take the online survey
If you’re not able to attend a workshop, you can complete the online survey here.
Information including other workshop dates can be viewed here.
