Goals of the Redevelopment Project
The City of Hamilton’s strategic focus for the West Harbour is guided by the principles and goals in two plans:
Mid-1900s: As a centre of trade, commercial and industrial growth, urbanization & industrial expansion on Hamilton’s waterfront nearly destroyed the area’s natural habitat
1950s to 1980s: Harbour’s ecosystem was severely degraded & deemed unfit for any recreation use due to severe water quality problems and little public access
Early 1990s: A major transformation of the West Harbour began with a focus on the natural ecological experience of the harbour.
Over the past 30 years: Investments of almost $2 billion by public & private sectors helped to remediate the harbour & enhance its water and ecological quality. The City and stakeholders have been internationally recognized for the restoration of the Harbour environmental ecosystem & the revival of the diverse range of fish and wildlife habitat.
