We need to immediately develop employment lands around the airport, however the land should be used to attract pharmaceutical and food based businesses for living wage jobs. We also need to ensure there are buildings and land available in all areas of the city for expansion of existing small to midsize and new entrepreneurial/incubator businesses. My vision would include making Flamborough an economic gateway to Hamilton and Burlington by expanding the Clappison business park along the east/west corridors at Hwy 6&5 with a focus to attract partnerships with Guelph University agri-business department and allow for incubator businesses at Hamilton Innovation Park to expand without moving out of the area. There is also opportunity to expand north on Hwy #6 to Parkside Drive. Flamborough needs commercial and light industrial complexes to allow the many growing businesses to stay located in Flamborough. This is a huge issue. Over the last four years, three businesses were forced to move to Burlington due to lack of expansion space (as well as lower business taxes !) Local businesses will not move to Hamilton.
