An editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
THE ALMOST FINISHED DOWNTOWN CENTRE PLAN goes in front of City council today for a look and it includes plenty to think about.
If you don’t have the fortitude to absorb all 143 pages plus appendices, skip past the annoying jargon such as “precincts” and “housing stock” and on down to the “Big Moves” section starting on page 84.
The most interesting stuff has to do with the downtown core.
For example, planners refuse to let go of the 4th Avenue plaza idea.
