The Graham Crawford Show

The Graham Crawford Show was created out of a belief that we need to talk about the issues and opportunities facing Hamilton in a way that generates debate and fosters understanding. The goal of show is to provide smart, progressive talk from regular panelists, subject matter experts, and personal observations. The show is posted weekly and always focuses on issues affecting you and the City of Hamilton. All of the people involved in The Graham Crawford Show do so because they believe that dialogue creates understanding. And the more we understand our city, the better we can all help it to realize its potential. All of the shows are recorded in downtown Hamilton in the studios of QED Media. Let’s talk Hamilton.

This edition of the Cityist is called A Story About Storeys - The Height of Arrogance.

One use of the word story refers to a narrative. The other, refers to a building.

In Hamilton, we build too many brand new public buildings that are one and two storeys tall. On land we own. And that we control, both in terms of value and zoning. Why?

Why do we not take advantage of the situation and increase the height and the uses of buildings we build using tax revenues? We continue to build one storey community centres instead of adding a few storeys of affordable housing, or seniors housing. Or a library. Or anything. We’re about to do it again on the LRT line in the stadium precinct where we’re building the Bernie Morelli Community Centre. One storey that tells another story.

This week on The Graham Crawford Show.
