I won't be posting for the next 10 days as I get some R&R.
I had been hoping to put a few thoughts together on the Hamilton Waterfront proposal but have run out of time. Suffice it to say I like the concept, but find the proposal on the table too ambitious.
I'd prefer we make better use of the existing waterfront before we go nuts and fill in half the harbour.
I'm also concerned about the proliferation of major capital projects on the table and coming down the pipeline. I can think of a number which are huge, including the new hospital (500M +), the replacement of the causeway (100M+), a new police station/courthouse and now this enormous undertaking in Hamilton.
The money's got to come from somewhere, and undoubtedly it'll be the taxpayer paying dearly.
I may put some more coherent thoughts together at some point. But chances are there will be no activity here until the 2nd or 3rd of April.
