To improve walkability in Kirkendall, a group of residents have been in touch with Brian McHattie and his staff regarding the possibility of installing a crosswalk across Aberdeen at Kent.
This is a busy intersection for foot traffic of HSR bus users and students heading south on Kent toward the HAAA park and Ryerson Middle School. We feel that a crosswalk at this location would provide a convenient point for people living between Locke and Queen on the north and south sides of Aberdeen to safely access the benefits of each other’s neighbourhoods, including schools, parks, and other amenities.
More details are available on the Raise the Hammer blog
Residents with a personal interest in the possibility of a crosswalk at this location are invited to attend a meeting with Brian McHattie and representatives from the Alternative Transportation Project and Healthy Living, Public Health.
Thursday, Dec 2, 2-3pm
Location: Room 192 (1st floor, Hamilton City Hall)
The next meeting of the COMMUNITY CARE COMMITTEE will be held on

As part of the Locke St. Festival, the Kirkendall Neighbourhood Association will be collecting non-perishable food items to support Mission Services’ Food Bank. Please stop by the KNA booth in front of St. Joseph’s Church and drop off a donation to help feed Hamilton’s needy familie. We’ll be loading an HSR bus with the food to donate later that day.
Thanks everyone! See you at the Festival!
The Kirkendall Neighbourhood Community Care Committee, a new committee of the Kirkendall Neighbourhood Association, would like you to know about an important series of events that will be taking place in early February.
The Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board and the Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction have partnered to host a series of events that will be taking place from February 5 – 7, 2008. Dr. Ruby Payne, Ph.D. will be at each of the three events as a keynote speaker and will discuss “A Framework for Understanding Poverty”.
We feel the sessions will be a valuable resource for those working and living in the community and an opportunity to continue our work of improving the quality of life for our most vulnerable; by helping to understand and alleviate poverty in Hamilton.
Each of the sessions has a different focus (click the links to each session for a flyer that includes contact information [PDF]):
Please forward this message along to anyone you know who might be interested in attending.
