Hamilton: Urban Strategies Academy Field Trip

November 12, 2015

Posted by

On November 11, 2015, we took our Academy on the road.

City of Hamilton Planning and Economic Development staff generously hosted Urban Strategies for a full day of on-site learning. Fifty of our employees participated.

With walking and bus tours of the West Harbour, the Downtown, Gore Park and the Durand neighbourhood, we had a fantastic opportunity to see the City’s ambitious plans taking shape. It also gave us a valuable chance to see some of the outcomes and implementation of our work in Hamilton over the last two decades. We enjoyed a great view of the city during lunch at the Stelco Tower.

We tweeted and Instagrammed the whole day. Follow #urbstratacademy to see everyone’s reflections on the tours.
