Should’ve, would’ve, could’ve 

Dear Mike Fleury,

I like the Carnival idea for the Spring Garden and Queen lot, but here's what I think could work well for everyone and for immediate use. Level off the big rubble piles and fill the lot with tonnes of sand. Erect a few dividers for a kid's area, a lounging-on-lawn-chairs area, beach volleyball, heck, a bar area if you want, throw in some merchant huts, a stage and you've got a modern day urban beach perfect for public use. Here's the kicker—if you want to build anything down the road, it's all easily dismantled and you just have to get rid of the sand. How perfect would that be?
