I'll give Mayor Fred a few points for providing a fresh vision for the downtown in terms of bricks and mortar. But it's really just a continuation of patchwork construction upgrades which provide little benefit to the city's taxpayers. Forget sipping coffee and eating cake around Gore Park until an alternative is found for the drifters and losers who congregate in the area and really make the place unwelcoming. It'll never have the feeling of a European piazza until the city centre stops being ground zero for half-way and crack houses. Sure, close down traffic, but just expect the downtown to become bigger congregating grounds for undesirables.
