I will vote to restore Auchmar Estate. Hamilton has been ignoring much of it’s heritage buildings and estates for too long. The City is bound and determined to make this into a condominium city that is car centered. The staff will even agree. I have to say though that I was disappointed when I went on a tour during Doors Open Hamilton event. It would take much dedication and a lot of money to make it an attractive site.
