in other cities, ideas like this can be turned around rapidly. Especially such a simple concept that literally only requires paint, and removing 'no parking from 4-6' signs.

In Hamilton, I'm guessing it'll never happen. We're the last city on the continent (that I can find. And trust me, I've looked) that is clinging to 1950's planning like grim death.

I chatted with a BIA bigwig from International Village this week and said "at the very least, can't you ask the city to un-time the lights so King isn't a freeway all day through there?" They replied "I've asked a million times in the past year. They say they can't mess with traffic flow".

The very fact that answer would even come from their mouths in 2013 shows how far behind we still are.
