George Square has always been an historic place in the heart of the city where residents could sit and watch the world go by.
The statues, which have been there for many decades, should stay.
Council leader Gordon Matheson says "I want to give the people of Glasgow the square they deserve."
If that is true, the square the people of Glasgow "deserve" is one which previous councils destroyed – lift the red tarmac, put back the floorbeds/grass and install more benches.
I THINK it's good news George Square is getting a revamp. It's about time.
The statues need a touch up, and it could be better designed for the events which are held there, such as the Olympic Torch concert.
I often see tourists there, and though the City Chambers are impressive, compared with other civic centres around the world, Glasgow gives a poor show.
It's fitting the work will be done in time for the 2014 Games.
ONCE again Paisley has stolen a march on Glasgow by adopting a proactive approach to tackling the shrubs and weeds that grow out of the top of buildings (September 13).
I would have thought Glasgow's problems with 'hanging gardens' of weeds growing from buildings was much worse than Paisley's however, it seems to be lagging behind.
What next for Paisley? – A beggar free town centre? – X Factor-type auditions for buskers?
I await the next move.
Toy town plan
THE decision (September 14) by East Renfrewshire Council to build over 4000 new homes, many on previously Greenbelt land, will ruin the area for future generations.
It'll turn a leafy area into just a another toy-town development.
