A community vision for the Town and Village of Hamilton


In 2030, what would an ideal Hamilton look like? What does Hamilton need to do to prepare for the future? Over the coming year, we will be hosting a series of meetings and events, in conjunction with many community partners, to help Hamilton reach a shared vision and action plan. 

This initiative builds from PCD’s exciting work over the past few years including a housing strategy, walkability audit, local food study, and work with other partners on climate action planning. In 2019, we invite you to join us in putting all these initiatives together to develop a unified, actionable vision that will help guide the development of the Town and Village of Hamilton over the next dozen years.  Watch our Facebook, Instagram, and monthly newsletter for details about upcoming events and ways to participate!
