The city is paying $120,000 to create a new pedestrian plaza in the ByWard Market so the big Ottawa letters have a proper backdrop.

But some business owners near the new plaza, which the city is constructing at York and Sussex streets, still hate that full on-street parking capacity on York Street won’t be reinstated after the teardown of Inspiration Village.
