New car-free street suggested for Charlottetown
City Council is looking at creating another pedestrian mall in Charlottetown.
The city has one seasonal pedestrian mall on Victoria Row behind Confederation Centre. Coun. David MacDonald told council Monday night it is time to think about establishing another one.
"People can come down, come park their cars, they can go to Victoria Row and eat and enjoy the music," said MacDonald.
"Then go to another part of the city and go to a pedestrian mall and shop and do those kinds of things."
MacDonald believes another pedestrian mall would attract more people to the city.
The idea is still in early stages. MacDonald suggested part of Kent Street or University Avenue might work, but said council will need to talk to businesses to see if they are interested.
It may take more than a year to put a plan in place, he said.
