I always enjoy reading the articles about what is going on in BPC. I have lived in BPC for 4 years, renting for 2 years on North End ave and then we purchased a place on South End Ave for the last 2 years.
Since your focus this year is on beautification of South End Ave, I though of a couple suggestions:
1) Replace the yellow paint in the middle of South End Ave with a raised garden or trees similar to North End Ave.
2) Add cross walks at Rector Place and West Thames. Currently there are no cross walks that traverse South End Ave south of Albany Street.
3) Renovate/Modernize the Statue/Display that is on the end of Albany Street next to the the Esplanade (currently it is an ugly cement looking structure)
4) Pressure Gateway Plaza to do a facelift of the exterior. They have tested different colors on the south side of one of their buildings a couple years ago.. now it is time to pick one and update.
