The public meeting hosted by Councillor Judi Partridge at St. Thomas the Apostle School in Mountainview Heights regarding the soon to be created Agro Park gave residents the opportunity to pose questions to the developers consultant, planners from the City, the Hamilton Police and Councillor Partridge. The meeting was very well attended with good discussion on several topics of interest.
Agro Park will be 5 acres, constructed in Fall 2016 to be completed in the Spring/Summer of 2017. The park will be to the west of the school and another planned park in subsequent phases will be directly to the east of the school.

Discussion at the meeting also covered the recent crime in the area such as break-ins, construction safety in the community, speeding, parking and home construction timelines. Safety, as the main priority, also raised the following items for consideration, which are supported by residents:
- Visible Signage (children playing, speed limit, etc) along Skinner and Burke
- Speed Humps along Skinner
- Ladder Crossing/Zebra Crossing directly in front of the school to assist with crossing Skinner
- Crossing Guards, one along Burke near McKnight and one along Skinner.
- No parking on Burke and alternating ‘one sided’ parking on other internal roads will be considered.
