Planning Committee

Do you love Kirkendall?  We do too! Kirkendall is truly one of Hamilton’s great urban neighbourhoods.

The last time Kirkendall developed a plan to guide its growth was in 1974 (You can read the 1974 plan here).  Over the past four decades, a lot has changed in the neighbourhood. To set a new course for the future, the City of Hamilton and the Kirkendall Neighbourhood Association (KNA) are partnering to develop a new neighbourhood-level strategy to outline a vision for our community and develop an action plan to address current and future needs.  We’re calling this project #mykirkendall.

We need your help to shape this new strategy and help us chart the course for future development of the neighbourhood.

As an example, the following are some of the issues that the plan could consider

  • Intensification (new housing, redevelopment and tall buildings)
  • Parks and Green Spaces
  • Traffic Calming (pedestrian and cycling safety)
  • Street Beautification (plants, trees, benches, water filling stations)
  • Urban Forestry
  • Parking
  • Cycling (separated lanes, paths)
  • Community Centres and other services
  • Alleyways (beautification, laneway housing, access)

The project is still at the beginning stages and we are kicking things off with an event for 100in1Day Hamilton.

We plan to have a Consultant hired to work with us on gathering input from our neighbours by this Fall (2018).
