Wonderful idea! It’s lately been shown, when the matter has actually been studied, that improving streets by emphasizing pedestrian and bicycle travel actually results in more income for most businesses. An article summarizing this (it emphasizes cycling, but the results are nearly the same for pedestrian travel) is at http://bicyclefixation.com/bikebucks.html, with links studies.
Supurb idea, and we hope you succeed in convincing the opposition on the plan. We’ve been trying here in New York to convince the Mayor to close 42nd Street to traffic and install a river-to-river light rail line — with no luck to date — although we have many supporters.
