City planner Jill Savage and her project team had an open door on Thursday for anyone to make a pitch on the future of the ByWard Market’s public spaces.
The city is taking a close look at the tourist district to understand how public spaces function today and how people would like to see them change. A design plan will create a blueprint for the city to follow.
Savage, the project manager on the study, which started in the summer, said it’s the time to make the market a priority, considering the renewal of the George Street pedestrian plaza, the opening of the Ottawa Art Gallery and the launch of the Confederation Line LRT.https://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/q-a-people-pitch-water-taxis-and-woonerfs-for-byward-market-public-spaces
