In an email this morning to Mayor Sam Adams and Susan Anderson, head of the city's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Dennis Harper—who identifies himself as an architect—says he's long believed the area some call the "Barmuda Triangle" needs a pedestrian-friendly makeover.

Harper included this sketch (PDF) of his plans for creating a European-style cafe promenade just south of West Burnside Street.
