No to Longwood and Aberdeen sign now

NO TO LONGWOOD AND ABERDEEN!

TO: Kirkendall Community, Durand Community, Westdale Community, the City of Hamilton, McMaster University, Brian McHattie, Ted McMeekin, McMaster Innovation Park

We are signing this petition to voice our opposition to the Longwood & Aberdeen site as the location for a future Tiger Cat Stadium.

We consider this site suggestion to be very poor planning to put a stadium on that parcel of land. The stretch of Hwy. 403 from West Hamilton to Ancaster is already notorious for traffic snarl ups due to many accidents. The added traffic for events such as the Tiger Cat games and also for future Pan Am Events is a potential nightmare. This overloaded highway will create an incredible cess pool of traffic at Hwy. 403, including the ramps coming off it to Aberdeen Avenue as well as other ramps used to get to a stadium at Longwood & Aberdeen. Many families and their children of the Kirkendall and neighbouring communities walk the streets in this area to access the trails and the lovely Chedoke Golf Course. We do not want to see Aberdeen Avenue and nearby streets turn into a congested highway in a residential neighbourhood.

We also believe that McMaster is being unduly pressured into making a land swap to give up this parcel of land. McMaster will be made to look like the bad guy if an agreement cannot be reached. McMaster University and the Innovation Park have had some solid plans for this west side of Longwood for a long time. The future job growth which will be NEW employment, will be jeopardizednot only for the present plan for a hybrid car manufacturer moving into this site, but also for attracting future business growth and employment. A prediction of 3,000 jobs in the City of Hamiltons future is more important to Hamilton than a stadium at this site. The expansion of the Innovation Centre is also important to the existing businesses in the MIP who are there because of the present and also the Future plans as originally designed and approved by Hamilton City Hall and welcomed by the neighbourhood.

    Innovation Park is a great addition for Hamilton's future workforce. To take park of it for eight football games is ridiculous. No one in their right mind will agree to stadium at this site.

    I could not be more opposed to this idea. Th e Aberdeen exit to the 403 is already a nightmare. We attempt to turn left from Studholm to Aberdeen and are nearly run down daily be people racing to and from the 403. The 403 is ofthen traffic jammed. There a

    The innovation park is designed to provide long-term investment in Hamilton with an influx of industry-- it needs all the space it can get.. We need to invest in the city.

    There is a reason why we have a planning dept. An innovation park is a better choice for those lands, not a stadium.

    This site does not meet the criteria: it will cause traffic congestion, it is not visible for naming, it will interfer with Mac's Innovation park. City council seems to have gone off the rails with the stadium issue. We should vote them all out - with the
