Are you happy in Hamilton?

Kelley Tantau Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi neighbours! Results from the latest Nielsen Quality of Life survey have shown that 84 per cent of Hamilton residents say they have a good quality of life, up from 82 per cent two years ago. While positive responses cite increased development, new buildings, and renovations, some people are concerned about a perceived increase in crime, traffic congestion and the high cost of living.
We are looking for constructive opinions on what Hamilton is doing well, as well as what Hamilton could improve on.
Feel free to flick me an email at kelley.tantau@stuff.co.nz or comment below! But PLEASE WRITE NFP IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR COMMENTS PUBLISHED.
