If the money can’t be spent outside the core, then I would say West Harbour wins. Somebody still has to put together a plan that addresses traffic, parking, access and development at the site.
From The Spec‘s Great Stadium Debate page, a landowner in west harbour has produced his own site plan which includes a stadium with a retractable roof. While there may be issues with a plan created without restraints, I wonder why the City of Hamilton has not produced anything of any detail on their chosen site. There are developers interested in West Harbour, but the city has not produced anything in terms of options or a vision that a supporter can hang their hat on.
For me, solve the access and parking issues (or at least address them) with West Harbour and the majority will fall behind the plan.
