On Wednesday February 13th, the BNA was pleased to host Ryan McGreal, editor of Raise The Hammer, a local blog that shares the BNA's commitment to making the city a liveable place. With a full house in attendance at the Beasley Community Centre, Ryan explained to the audience the importance of designing streets so that they serve citizens' needs, not just those of cars.
The presentation, available below or by clicking here, demonstrates how complete, two-way streets with wider sidewalks, better crossings, dedicated bike lanes, and more public spaces can help improve safety for drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists in downtown Hamilton.
We thank Ryan for coming out to our meeting, and after seeing his presentation, BNA members indicated a preference for our organization to pursue opportunities for Complete Streets in the Beasley neighbourhood.
