At the September 2 city council meeting, one agenda item was an event called "the Broadway Summit." The idea is to bring the community together to discuss the vision of the street. Lots of detail about the summit was discussed. From when the meeting would be held to its format to whether there should be an online survey, etc. I believe the date of this event, now called the Broadway Open House, will take place at First Presbyterian Church on October 18 from 9am-noon. (Please check the city website as this is subject to change.)
One merchant says Broadway needs help. There is no doubt that there are vacancies currently, but any downtown has its share of market forces pushing some out and attracting others.
One council member suggested an online forum or blog to get the community's opinion about what to do with Broadway.
Well, folks here's just that community online forum. OK let's brainstorm right here. Go ahead, give an opinion, ask a question, post suggestions. The sky's the limit.
