The Grafton Street Quarter improvement plans were unveiled yesterday you can find more information on this website www.gsq.ie and also in todays Irish times http://www.irishtimes.com/news/environment/revamp-plans-for-grafton-quarter-published-1.1573951
The public have just over two weeks, until November 15th to make observations and submissions on the designs which you can see on the website above. It is very very important that people engage themselves in this process otherwise it will just be a small selection of the business community.
Submissions must be made in writing to Frank Lambe, Project Manager, South East Area, Block 2, Floor 4, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8 or by email to email@example.com before Friday, 15th November 2013.
You don’t want to end up in what looks like an outdoor shopping mall with overbearing inappropriate architectural designs that are out of place like the ridiculous lamp standards in Smithfield plaza or even the kind of designed lamp standards that are depicted in one of the montages of St Stephens green south.
If you are interested in any of the aspects of this urban design from street furniture to appropriate trees to cyclists issues/pedestrian or any other features you fear are being over looked.
Now is the time to join the conversation.
