The City of Raleigh is looking for ideas on how to rejuvenate one of its downtown parks that has fallen on hard times. Moore Square - adjacent to City Market - is looking a little shabby and worn of late.

The city's planning department proposed a schedule to the Raleigh City Council Tuesday afternoon. The council approved taking until June to look into a concept.

Starting in May, the city will call for ideas and hold a design competition slated to wrap up in September. From September through January 2010, the city will approve a final design and a team to carry it out.
