At the very least, some landscaping and architectural lighting to make the place more inviting.

Exactly. They should have considered moving it out of downtown. Land prices are cheaper and it should be build somewhere away from civilization.

I guess the argument is that it is so close to the courthouse?

In other news, Huizar says they have $2 million to fix up Pershing Sq so far and are going to do a design competition and more fundraising. For god's sake, just let a park be a park for once and don't try to overthink and outdo everything. While there's a strong local sentiment to bring the park to its former park grandeur, I have my doubts that the people in charge see it that way.

I remember in 1984 when they redesigned the park...they did so to prevent the problem that was there for years…vagrants laying all over the lawn passed out. It was really disgusting….but as we know now, the revised park strategy did not work. But…I will say nobody seemed to use the park prior to the "renovation". At least now they have good programming. Hopefully we have learned our lessons for the new Pershing Square.

Oh yeah.......I forgot about the prison. Thanks blackcat. Prisons do tend to dampen enthusiasm for moving into a neighborhood.

Thanks Brian and Brudy for the clarification.

And yes, Brudy, even inmates want a Starbucks and a Walgreens.

Yes, from your mouth to God's.....I mean to Huizar's ear. A park is a park is a park.
