There are more than half a dozen proposed large-scale residential developments in Ainslie Wood and Westdale, at various stages of planning and approval. We are working to keep track of the proposals and their status with City Hall so that AWWCA members and other neighbours know what’s being proposed and planned. We welcome any additions or updates.
The City of Hamilton Public Health Services has received some questions about the transmission of SARS-Cov-2 / COVID-19 via mosquitos. Here is their response:
The new coronavirus CANNOT be transmitted through mosquito bites. To date there has been no information nor evidence to suggest that the new coronavirus could be transmitted by mosquitoes. The new coronavirus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose. To protect yourself, clean your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Also, avoid close contact with anyone who is coughing and sneezing.

The Royal Botanical Gardens are looking for ca. 1,300 Christmas trees to construct a rampart to help block the flow of pollution into the marsh.
The RBG is looking for an additional 1,500 trees for extending the Grindstone Creek barrier, which helps to control carp.
Trees can be dropped off until Tuesday, January 13 at Princess Point for the Chedoke Creek barrier or at Valley Inn Road just off Spring Gardens Road for the Grindstone Creek barrier. Signs will be posted at each site about details.
