5 good suggestions for how to reduce the cost of BSL and get more bang for the buck on the riverfront.
Check them out HERE and share your ideas. Several comments so far: make it a deck not a dock; get rid of the “pods/islets” and put a playground at the N. end of Tom Lee Park; convert it to a skate park; make it a plaza with food vendors.
