Urban Planning & Public Space

Dear Montreal,

The economic downturn kiboshed all plans for big box stores in Griffintown - much to my relief. You've a real chance to develop the waterfront as a space that is green, welcoming, restful, secure, exciting & accessible, that the many denizens of Griffintown (and the rest of the city) can enjoy for many years to come. Please don't mess this up. Suggestions: public playspaces for all ages, picnic tables, bike paths & bike parking, skating rinks, busking spaces, shade trees, art installations.
