H.A.A.A. Fieldhouse Future Use Survey

During the course of the H.A.A.A. Park renewal consultation, many residents lamented the lack of access to the building and asked how the fieldhouse could become more of a vital public building to the neighbourhood of Kirkendall and better integrated with the overall park renewal (See H.A.A.A. Park Renewal)

The H.A.A.A. Field House feasibility project aims to provide an accessible, multi-purpose space for community use and programming opportunities. Feedback from community members and key stakeholders will help inform the project by identifying building improvements and additional features within the existing building.

The H.A.A.A. Fieldhouse is a 5,356 sq/ft building located at 250 Charlton Ave W, at the south end of the Hamilton Amateur Athletics Association park. Designed in 1930 by Hamilton architect Stewart McPhie, and constructed in 1944, the fieldhouse was initially designed to host two locker rooms, a second-floor office, storage and washrooms.

Please complete the survey by February 13, 2022, in order to share your ideas for the H.A.A.A. Fieldhouse project.

Encampments and Institutional Responsibility: A Letter to Ward 1 Residents

Dear residents of Ward 1

In a previous letter to Ward 1 residents, I set out my position on the City’s abrupt decision to end the encampment protocol: https://www.maureenwilson.ca/encampments0921. The protocol was an agreement arrived at by the City of Hamilton and various health, housing and justice agencies to guide the municipality’s response to encampments. It was a housing-first approach. It set a time limit of fourteen days for tents to be in a City park and placed a cap on the number of tents permitted in any one place. It assessed the mental acuity of encamped persons. It also prohibited encampments in certain places such as near schools. I regret that City staff were not able to meet with their protocol partners to negotiate any amendments considered necessary before being instructed to terminate the agreement. As a result of Council’s decision, the Hamilton Police Service has been formally inserted into the City’s response to homelessness.
