Glad that people take interest in this. For those with questions, Clevelanders for Public Transit has a web site with a lot of information about Public Square and why they want transit back on Superior.
I'm not a member, though I was at their event on Saturday which is where I learned about the web site.
Good for them! Add a wave pool please. I didn't mind staying there..the price was right staff was very nice, but they unfortunately take a back seat to Kalahari.... I compared it to imagining being out in some boon dock town and Maui sands being the big deal for all the locals. Only way to describe it... Looking forward to seeing the renovations!!
@growler since none of that information is included in the article I would be hard pressed to deduce that. And doing the budget for a business is a little different than budgeting a $200 mil public entity. The buses are rerouted about 500 feet - if it's costing 2.5 mil then they are doing it wrong. They don't have even close to 2500 buses - they have 425 (yes I realize buses go thru more than once a day).
Genuinely wondering....why is everyone so heated on this topic? Will this raise fares for riders? I think a closed square would be much nicer looking, safer for pedestrians, etc. It also would be nice to have one big , uninterrupted park downtown for people to enjoy.
Official Sarah Palin "Drill, Baby, Drill!" T-shirts, buttons, sweatshirts and caps will also be for sale on the auction webpage.
Aren't the busses just picking up people on Ontario St. now anyway? What's wrong with that?
When you abbreviate something you should let the readers know you will be abbreviating it, after the first time you spell it out. Bureau of Land Managment (BLM). Please and thank you.
@Daniel - you've clearly never done budgeting for a business. it's pretty easy to rack up spending when 2,500 buses a day go through there. that's only a few bucks a bus...and with the huge delays it's causing (which means drivers' labor hours), it's pretty darn easy.
This is disgusting and sad. BLM & NPS should be viewed as sacred ground. The tax-paying officials working in these offices should not be pursuing private-public deals of this nature.
Not everything in life is supposed to make money. NPS & BLM land should not be abused or subjugated by a profit-motive theology.
Why would it take $2.6 million additional to reroute around the edge of public square? That makes ZERO sense.
The Plain Dealer and its online home of pop-up ads has political coverage that's beyond irrelevant -- empty suits like Chris Quinn still can't get over how the Feds shut down the big party palace they gleefully promoted that was operated by great friend Jimmy Dimora.
With photos like this and phrases like 'quarter-pounder-in-chief' you lose whatever tiny bit of integrity you may have had .. do you think you are funny?
The college playoff could expand to six teams -- a slot each for the Power Five conference champs and one wild card -- with the top two seeds receiving a bye and the two play-in games being contested on the Saturday after the selection show....seed three hosts the wild card and seed four entertains seed five. The losers in the opening round face-off in a "consolation" bowl game, while the Final Four forges ahead to determine the king of turf.
I was a very productive citizen for a long time. Made a lot of money, paid a lot in taxed. I tryed dope when I was 32 now I'm 34 and have nothing. This drug does not discriminate and I hope it puts its hooks in you (the truth for all) just so you can see we are not disgusting lowlifes, we are people just like you.
