Our city challenges

It doesn’t matter when elections are held. Cities always face challenges and  Hamilton is no different. 

Challenges can be positive. They prompt change and demand a fresh way of thinking. They can become great opportunities for long-term good. 

This section outlines five key challenges facing our city we should all be thinking about. There are more, and always will be. But these are the challenges our aspiring Elected Members in particular should be thinking about, talking about and considering when they talk to people in our city during the election period. 

These challenges are from our Pre-election Report, which also outlines the state of the city’s finances, major projects planned, the business of Council and election information.
