There are a number issues with the downtown other than those listed here. Suggestions for further study:
Eliminating the jumble of rights of way
beween John & Centre south of Dundas and making it a municipal laneway. This was done north of Dundas before amalgamation at minimal cost and with excellent results.
Survey of upper floor space. Encourage consolidation of bldgs which could accommodate elevator as was done at 2-6 Dundas W and 28-32 Dundas E. Example: 35-39 Dundas E;
Interest free loans to make upper levels into accessible housing; Examples: New York Cafe; 42 Dundas E; Wallaces bldgs.
Re-introduce and expand StreetSmart program.
Town spent $72,000 in 2014 installing WiFi and Cameras downtown. Have the cameras been effective? Will it deter crime and help reduce police costs? Does the WiFi attract the downtown visitors we want?
