I think they should start to think of creating the downtown core west to east instead of north to south.

Close off the 100 and 200 Main Street block and make it into park and pedestrian restaurants and shops like a Paris street. The businesses downtown can sell investments into this idea to local investors and then we won’t just be fighting with one coffee shop downtown.

If we are already developing the city why not invest instead of relying on property owners to cover the costs.
