It's an urban planning problem, but more fundamentally it's about justice. City Hall is waaaay too comfortable sacrificing the health and well-being of a relatively poor and disenfranchised downtown population for outside moneyed interests. I think we need to be noisier and more confrontational, freak City Hall out a little bit, force them to rethink. Like, say, getting a big crowd together and shutting down Main Street. Make it a regular thing, grow the crowd as big as you can, call the media, get arrested a few times, bring the kids. Deliver a clear, uncompromising message: These our neighborhoods, these are our streets, and we're taking them back.
