"Be it resolved that the we support the removal of the viaducts in principle only, on the express condition that the removal in principle is a necessary precursor to the development of an Eastern Core Strategy. We do not support the physical removal of the viaducts without said strategy; a strategy than involves all the local stakeholders and that explicitly results in the reclassification of Prior Street from an 'arterial' to a 'local residential street' with incumbent major reductions in traffic, improvements to safety, and redesign of the public realm."
