Planning a Leap Forward for Hamilton’s Waterfront

In her article in the Hamilton Spectator, “Partnership spurs remedial work along city’s waterfront,” journalist Meredith MacLeod describes the recent announcement by the Hamilton Community FoundationEvergreen CityWorks and senior city staff of a plan to tackle greening and revitalization projects in the west harbour district of Hamilton.

MacLeod writes “David Young wants to see a transformation of the city’s waterfront — and he’s hoping a $500,000 donation from his foundation will help that happen…Young is a Hamilton native, brother to Tiger-Cats’ owner Bob Young and part of a family dynasty in the city. A successful Toronto businessman, he started working on a deal to donate money from the Michael Young Family Foundation to his hometown’s revitalization.”
