Aberdeen Avenue - 2020 Changes

Aberdeen Road Diet Information Session held September 2, 2020
Traffic Operations staff Q&A with Ward 1 residents.

Recap and additional documentation

INTRODUCTION

Aberdeen is not a safe street. In fact, it is almost 5 times as dangerous as the industry threshold for an ‘area of concern’. Changes were required and requested by residents over the years.

All of the changes, including the final phase about to be made, are designed to make the street safer for all who use it every day.

The input of residents, the expertise of our traffic engineers, Council approved program and policies, and the review of similar roads in Hamilton were part of the planning process.

I’m confident these changes will ensure the road is made safer for all residents, particularly for the hundreds of children who use Aberdeen every day to and from school.

Please review this update and contact me if you have questions or feedback you wish to share.

Encampments in Hamilton

housing_and_encampment.jpg

There have been encampments across the lower City of Hamilton for years. 

Before COVID-19, most if not all the encampments in Ward 1 were hidden from public view – in ravines, under highway overpasses or adjacent to railway lands. 

The growth of encampments caused the City of Hamilton to adopt a protocol of response in 2018. Once identified, a team of public health and housing services workers from the City of Hamilton make contact with those living rough to begin the process of determining the health, housing, and social needs of encampment residents. When accommodation and supports were in place, the encampment was cleared and cleaned.
