My read on this is that Councillor Ferguson is looking to put greater pressure on developers who are slow to restore structurally unstable buildings. Charging for lane closures is one way to apply that pressure and force the work to get done sooner rather than later. Anyone who cares about revitalizing the downtown core can't be happy with eyesore properties that aren't being renewed & restored. It's been 9 years since the building at King & Hess was damaged in a fire. It could and should be a prime piece of residential and/or commercial real estate.
