Pedestrian streets uptown?

Common Councillor Blake Armstrong’s idea for temporary pedestrian streets uptown is being studied.

He’s proposed closing parts of some streets to vehicles on weekend nights or for special events as a way to get more people into the entertainment district.

Some Canterbury Street business owners are open to the idea. Shannon Merrifield, at the Buckland Merrifield Gallery, told the Telegraph-Journal pedestrian streets coupled with uptown events is a natural marriage which could draw hundreds of people to the area.
