I think one of Graham's points deserves further exploration: making City Hall more "user friendly." In the overflow seating at August COW meeting,I had lots of difficulty following the debate. The building has some heritage restrictions, but I don't see why a screen couldn't be mounted in the overflow area/hallway so that people can see what's happening inside without entering Council Chambers. (or even a feed into the one that's already mounted) Or an agenda taped/mounted on the wall. Similarly, I hear that difficulties experienced by The Spec with the live streaming are due to an inadequate feed in the Council Chambers. Why wasn't this remedied with the renovation?! Why was there no citizen committee to work on ensuring that these kinds of changes were made? Can we believe that City Council doesn't have an interest in having members of the public know what's going on in Council meetings?! Perhaps RHT could do a piece containing suggestions for making City Hall more accessible, including bike racks out front.
