Not sure I agree at all; the current pedway seems to work well and offers a convenient way to access the building without going outside. But alas, I'll try to keep the thread on-topicIt's the most circuitous route to get the and you arrive at the loading/group entry.
I'd hope that this might permit a second entrance (in time) to make it more direct from City Hall.
Not from the same pot. The incentive is a tax freeze for 5 years no money out of the city’s pocket the money for the pedway is from the CRL money that has to be spent downtown.
That's good to know. I do appreciate the arguments about the effect pedways have on street vibrancy, but we have a climate that can be quite cold for some periods of time so I think this helps make downtown more liveable/attractive. I often use it. The pedway system has not as far as I can tell grown that much, so perhaps the time for an expansion and for it to move north a bit. If it can connect the museum better and other potential future developments nearby that would be good to.Not from the same pot.

Two , three hundred people living downtown is not going to contribute to the vitality?$26M out of a fund meant to revitalize downtown being used to keep people from having to contribute anything to the vitality of downtown was always an expensively bad proposition. It should never have been approved, and at least should have been cancelled when opportunities to do so were present.
It may be just two hundred to three hundred people, but one of the weak areas of the current pedway system is it mostly connects office and commercial, not very much residential.^^^^ Maybe... I have to think about that.
