Make Elgin about people, not cars

Re: New Elgin in the works; Street set to be closed for a year during construction, April 28

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make Elgin Street a “main street!”

The focus of the Ottawa Citizen’s article seemed to be more about cars than people. I avoid Elgin Street when walking from Pretoria Bridge to Laurier Street because of the narrow sidewalks. Widening the sidewalks, planting trees and lowering the speed limit to 30 km/hr will make it much more pleasant for people to walk, shop and enjoy the cafés, restaurants and bars.
