I agree with Ken that "downtown" is not a vibrant action attraction word. But I'd advise against replacing it with the city's core. The alcohol stupefied hooligans who go downtown will soon convert that into Guelph's hardcore.

For immediate and longer term development my feeling is we should designate the "downtown core" as Guelph's City Centre. If we call it the City Centre we might begin to see a unifying of efforts across our community's entrepreneurial and cultural energies.

Hey Ed!

That's not a bad idea!
