A couple points that really caught my attention - the flexible street design where the parallel parking can be closed for pedestrians during busy times...ditto for the plaza in front of city hall. Also, the fantastic landscaping, benches, lighting, public art etc..... For all the talk of a flexible streetscape when we did York Blvd, all we ended up with is another typical street. We need leaders and engineers with vision and an ability to break out of the boring old status-quo box with our urban design. Truth be told, King St in Kitchener is quite tame compared to some of the great innovative design happening in other North American cities and Europe.
