In 1902, a city planning commission created a vision for downtown Cleveland's Malls A, B & C. Now, 108 years later, these public spaces are overdue for a facelift. New development projects like the Med Mart and Convention Center present an opportunity to revitalize the area and generate new business downtown. Mayor Frank Jackson recently appointed a committee to evaluate these spaces and the purpose they serve. Monday on the Sound of Ideas we'll drill down to find out what the committee plans to accomplish, how it will be paid for, and if they are really considering a water park turned ice skating rink. Join host Mike McIntyre for that conversation, Monday morning at 9 on 90.3.

Pioneer Square in Portland, OR is a great example of a public square that works. I believe it is partly due to the large number of events (many of them free) that take place there year-round - concerts, outdoor movie screenings, brewfests, dance performances, etc.
