But the change – if it comes about – won’t be a permanent plaza in the main Gray St. block. More likely it would involve a civic square between the Town Hall and Coles in Brown St. and a clean-up and possible re-organisation of traffic and parking in Gray St. The Spectator survey, which began on Monday, covered the six business blocks bordered by Kennedy, Lonsdale, Cox and French Sts. The survey followed closure of the main Gray St. block on Friday, which was organised by the Spectator and approved by the City Council. Results to date, with only a few businesses to be contacted, show 45 against a plaza and 37 in favour in the total survey area.
