Much of the revitalization of downtown can be achieved by cleaning up the storefronts through painting, power washing, and flower boxes.

Simple things like banning sale item clothing racks will upgrade it’s appearance, and cost nothing.

We need to tear up Main Street to upgrade  infrastructure, so we might as well spruce the street up while we’re at it, but going to two lanes may not be affordable when addressing the 2015 budget.

And it makes sense that the reverse referendum should include all the merchants from the 100 to the 500 blocks at the same time.
