Jamesville Property Sold, Redevelopment Plan to be Submitted Soon - Will Include Affordable Housing

The City of Hamilton has sold the large property containing the now-empty Jamesville affordable housing complex along with the community park "tot lot" at the corner of Strachan & Guise across from the entrance to Bayfront Park. The purchaser/developer has worked closely with NENA's Planning Committee on their plans for the two properties and has agreed to comply with existing planning guidelines. The developer has now submitted their design proposal to the city for review. Due to their eagerness to implement NENA design recommendations, and remain within existing planning document guidelines regarding, height, setbacks, and traffic management, the association's Planning Committee has recommended NENA's support of the forthcoming design proposal for Jamesville which will include both city-run and Indwell-managed affordable housing units. 

A sub-committee has been tasked with analyzing the development proposal and has created a draft report on the design with concerns and recommendations. The draft report can be found below:
