"Park development should go hand-in-hand with residential development, like condos or townhouses, downtown, Bratina said. The city is in the process of hiring a company to conduct the $171,500 cleanup of 600 to 1,000 cubic metres of soil at the site. Interested parties had until this week to file a prequalification document. The cleanup is to start this fall and take between four and five weeks. The site will be repaved for continued use as a parking lot before park development, Marini said. The lost parking spaces will be made up at 140 King William St., according to a Dec. 14, 2009, city document about the site."

*Should* go hand-in-hand. A lot of things *should* happen.

I worry that this park will experience an interim purgatory like Gore Park. If an existing park intended to grow into a piazza can devolve into a parking lot, I don't hold out much hope for a parking lot that is being freshly paved en route to parkdom.
