Plau­dits for Pla­m­on­don’s plan

Re: Sparks Street — Stop throw­ing good money af­ter bad, April 15.

What a won­der­fully fresh and in­no­va­tive idea from Bob Pla­m­on­don. It’s not dif­fi­cult to imag­ine that part of Wellington Street as a pedes­trian space. You just have to be there, in sum­mer es­pe­cially, to see peo­ple en­joy­ing the prox­im­ity to Par­lia­ment Hill. With a care­ful plan and a cre­ative imag­i­na­tion, it could be fab­u­lous.

No mat­ter what tired old re­vamp is planned for Sparks Street, all you have to do is stand there in the mid­dle of win­ter and ad­mit to your­self that it doesn’t get much bet­ter.
