This space is large enough that (after remediation), many community needs can be met. This could include green space, performance space, museum, shopping, parking, and a hub for public transit.

Absolutely agree. This is wasted, empty space probably 90% of the year. There is so much that can be done with it

Are there any signs posted? If not, maybe signs that even children would understand, and are polite. I like the idea of a patch for picking. Maybe an area for planting and the pickers could just plant their own. Everyone​ needs to be more responsible for the surroundings, and with education and visible support it will help to steer people in the direction. I think this is such a great platform to share ideas and develop pride in our city.

I would propose a random monthly "Quality of Life" police patrol of neighbourhoods - to observe and enforce the "nuisance" bylaws that often get forgotten, such as noise, smoking, dog waste, and of course, mattress dumping ;)

I don't own any pets but I do tend to carry doggie bags from the dollar store in my pocket as they are small and inexpensive. When I see someone walking their dog without cleaning up after them. I shout out to them and say something along the lines of "I noticed that you don't seem to have doggie bag allow me to provide you one of mine so we can help keep this area clean for everyone." It might help that I am 6 foot 1 and 200 plus pounds but even the biggest scariest folks seem to take me up on the offer for fear of looking bad.

As a regular dog walker uptown, I have noticed that dog waste is a problem, especially along Germain Street. Could we install dog waste bag dispensers in a few locations on the central peninsula? They could even be sponsored.
