John Best and Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Ward talk to Bill Kelly about LaSalle Park. The park is owned by Hamilton and leased by the City of Burlington for a dollar a year. Burlington pays all upkeep costs. Hamilton Councillor Sam Merulla has suggested with the 40-year lease coming up for renewal in 2022 that Hamilton look at realizing the best value of the land before renegotiating the deal.
The motion read:
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:
That the Corporate Real Estate Office, in collaboration with other relevant divisions, be
directed to undertake a review of the value and implications of alternative disposition (sell,
lease, develop, operate) options for LaSalle Park, and report back to General Issues
Committee. A link to the broadcast is below:
