Support The Pilot Project. Government street closures on going, Sundays Noon to 5 until mid September.Sign this petition to close Government street to traffic and open it up as a European style pedestrian mall for the public, pets, bikes, boards, and festivals, alongside the Bastion Square Market. Our beautiful main street for the People, for all time. Support The Pilot Project.This trial run has closed Government street from Fort street to Yates street every Sunday noon to 5, with foresight to close Government street permanently, and potentially a few more blocks in the future.Imagine a fairway style street complemented by the Bastion Square Market and various festivals which are currently spread around the city. This would give them greater success being concentrated in one location, attracting citizens and tourists alike. This would be a boon for local business and vendors. Side streets can serve as additional parking. Delivery trucks and horses would be permitted. It would be a welcome break from the traffic for the horses.Many cities in North America, Europe and elsewhere around the world have adopted a pedestrian street as a focal point for their communities in recent years. Testimony from their citizens has proven it to be of great benefit for local business. Our city being a tourist city has been behind the times with regards to this.Let the city know that you support this citizen led effort by signing now ! PLEASE SHARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA ! Thank You for your time. Sheldon Toop
