Can anyone envision anything major happening to the downtown area in terms of new buildings, improvements, etc? I have lived her for 15 years and in that time the only thing that I've seen is further things falling apart or just flat leaving. Like any living organism, growth is needed for survival. The city council needs to have a serious plan about the downtown area. Building a city hall on prime real estate isn't going to cut it. Driving away developers with red tape and allowing anarchist to intimidate developers won't either. I'd like to see whole city blocks demolished and new multiusage buildings put in place. How about a nice movie theatre? How about a store like Macy's or Target or Kohl's? What about building a low hourly rate parking structure. And getting a zoning ordinance with some backbone to drive out all those ridiculious tattoo parlors, et al. out.
