Complete Streets Pilot
In January 2015, in partnership with the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce and the McMaster Institute for Transportation and Logistics, the Network for Community-Campus Partnerships piloted a deliberative dialogue to ask the question "What is the business/economic case for implementing complete streets?" This dialogue involved a range of colleagues from multiple Faculties at McMaster and from community organizations, business, and government. The outcomes were shared in a report (see below), which informed subsequent catalyst projects funded by the Network to form new partnerships. Reports based on these catalyst projects are currently being used by the City of Hamilton and other partners for future planning and are also shared below.
