Pershing Square's Palm Court was to have been the site of a $190,000 renovation.

City Council today voted to veto a $190,000 renovation that would have added grass and exercise equipment to Pershing Square's Palm Court. The site, on the northeast corner of the park, is currently surfaced in crushed granite and is home to the park's collection of statues.

Council asserted jurisdiction over the Rec & Parks decision in mid-June. The proposed improvements were a hot topic on this site, with the story that brought them to Downtown's attention getting 113 comments.
