What Will be Downtown Hamilton’s Future?

From the days of horse-and-buggy to SUVs, downtown Hamilton has seen a host of changes. Yet portions of the district have remained the same.

The historic buildings and the needs of modern day consumers often are at odds, but successful projects have helped elsewhere throughout the country.

The Hamilton City Council recently started work on a Downtown Master Plan to guide the area into the future. Consultants from Marketek, Inc., are helping develop ideas gleaned from some focus group meetings this month, along with a commmunity Town Hall meeting Thursday, February 20, at City Hall on South 2nd Street at 6:30 p.m.

The public is urged to attend and to bring along comments and ideas about Hamilton’s downtown – now and in the future. The consultants will share successful developments in other towns and will ask the public how Hamilton can improve its visual appearance, marketability and economic vitality.

Hamilton’s wide Main Street benefits from the early plat of the town during Marcus Daly’s days. A few years back, it also underwent a huge infrastructure improvement of water and sewer lines, pavement, lighting and other improvements. The City Council hopes to build on that effort.

There are online surveys, too.

One survey is just for shoppers.

The other survey is for business owners.

Please check them out and complete a survey before March 7th. They truly want your opinions!
