Talk it up! The good news is, the City is undertaking the "downtown mobility study," which will look at changing some of the one-way grid to two-way and making other pro-walking changes. (Liberty and Commercial are, alas, still outside the scope of prospective change.)

The bad news is, we study things to death and this could be yet another sterile shelf study that generates no meaningful change.

But there's a process starting which, if sufficient political and cultural will gathers behind it, can make actual change to the downtown streetscape.
