17th & E. Main Farmers Market Area

The City wants to hand off the Farmers Market site to some other entity to operate and maintain. This prospect begs the question: what use(s) and improvements need to be made to this area including the one way- paired 17th Street streets abutting the market site? Given the fact that the City has proven it is unable and unwilling to make this property contribute to a neighborhood with many successful small business enterprises, it should only give it up to an appropriate organization once a successful and sustainable program for its future is flushed out.
Any ideas to make it a viable and contributing part of the Bottom?
