Hamilton City Council facing July deadline for velodrome

Hamilton City Council may need to hold at least one special meeting before the end of July as external deadline for the velodrome Request for Proposals process is July 28.

That’s when Toronto 2015 CEO Ian Troop stated he plans to issue the RFP for the new facility. In order to issue the RFP, a site is required.

When last updated by city staff, Council was looking at a partnership with Mohawk College to build the velodrome at the Fennell campus.

Unless Toronto 2015 delays the RFP process, we should expect City Council to meet in the next three weeks to decide the location.
