London.ca just posted a small article about Market Lane with an attached questionnaire. Thought you guys might be interested in adding your two cents.
Article and Survey
Here's what I wrote for the two main questions:
Q.What do you dislike about Market Lane?
A.It doesn't connect to Dundas very well. Right now it's just a hole in the streetwall that people occasionally meander through.
Q.How would you change Market Lane?
A.-I would turn the Lane itself into a bit more of a destination. A grander entrance on Dundas with vibrant lighting and large Market Lane signage. Give it an outdoor atrium feeling with a strong presence on Dundas.
-Add food vendors and allow street performing in the Lane to help draw people in off of Dundas.
-Team up with The MET to incorporate both sides of Dundas.
-Explore options with Fanshawe about developing a cafe that opens into the Lane.
