More than 100 business and community leaders participated in recent activities with the Project for Public Spaces, sponsored by the Downtown BIA and its partners. PPS will be producing a final report in 4-6 weeks, but plenty of energy has already been released and some strong recommendations have already emerged:
- Developing a regular "art mart" for Pacific Plaza that will offer local artists the opportunity to hawk their wares;
- Identifying a location (under I-705?) and funding for a skatepark between downtown and the Thea Foss Waterway;
- Exploring ways to better (more pro-actively) manage Pacific Plaza and promote its activation (e.g., fill it with people every day)
If you are interested in helping with one of these efforts--or if you think we've left anything off the list that needs to be pursued right now--please leave a comment.
