More on renovating Public Square

In a long, unsigned editorial, which was promoted in a prominent piece on the front page of the Forum section, the PD supports recent efforts to envision a new, refurbished Public Square, even if it means closing the Square to through traffic. ("Public Square's roots: Cleveland's 'commons' would benefit from a return to the vision of a friendly and inviting gathering place." Plain Dealer. Sunday, June 18, 2006. Page H-2)

Elsewhere on the editorial page, two letters weigh in on the original article by Tom Breckenridge, one (by Bradley Fink and Mark Jackson) challenges the planners to be more inclusive and participatory in their work and the other (by Steven McQuillin) supports the idea of a unified Square. ("Squaring away the city's public space.". PD. Page H-6)
