On Monday, February 29, Victor Mendolia interviewed Mayor Tiffany Martin Hamilton on the occasion of her first sixty days in office. That interview aired on WGXC on Wednesday, March 2.
Speaking of her priorities, Hamilton mentioned broadband first. She talked at some length about developing a new urban renewal plan, focused on the north side of the city, which would include both commercial development and affordable housing. She also spoke of making updates to the city's zoning, mentioning specifically the amendment already proposed for the R-S-C district.
Also of interest, Hamilton said had formed a working group to address the need to replace the Ferry Street Bridge, was soon to present to the Common Council a proposal for revamping the City website, and intended to hold an open community meeting at North Bay in May to discuss the future of the Furgary Boat Club.
The interview has been archived and can be heard here. It's well worth the hour spent listening to it.
