Stop Sprawl Hamilton
Ontario is losing farmland at the rate of 175 acres per day. Under the shroud of Covid19 and while we were distracted, the Province changed the rule book on land use planning and now thousands of acres of productive farmland surrounding our city is on the chopping block. This land grab of prime agricultural soil for low density, car dependent communities would be irreversible. Here in Hamilton, we have some of the best farmland in Canada. More than 3300 acres of productive class 1, 2, 3 soil farmland is at risk of being handed over to developers to be paved over for expensive subdivisions. But Hamilton has plenty of room to grow and flourish within our current urban boundary! We need your help to fight urban sprawl and save our precious farmland because once it is gone, we can’t get it back. We want to ensure that Hamilton City Council makes the responsible choice for our city and votes for No urban boundary expansion for Hamilton.
