100 in 1 Day is a festival of global citizen action and Hamilton is participating for the second year in a row.  Last year we had 250 citizens plan 120 “urban interventions” which helped make their city a better place!

The Gore Buildings are Designated

BbSydAOIAAA5ponIn a surprising turn of events, spurred by motion brought to Council by Jason Farr, City Council voted unanimously to designate 18-22 King Street East and protect the buildings from demolition. Read the details on the motion on Raisethehammer.

Durand Park Ice Rink

If anyone is interested in helping out with developing and/or maintaining this year’s rink please email president@durandna.com.

Bike Share in Durand

City Council approved the Hamilton public bike share program on Wednesday.  The bike share service area map was just released and the Durand is within the core service area.  A description of the map, the overall program and the Social Bicycles System that will be used to provide the bike share service can be found in a Raisethehammer summary.
