Bonville has said they are trying to attract "out of town" businesses, and business owners. The "transplants" from out of town say they feel no love from the people in the community. Well let's attempt to do something positive here on the forums. Let's say on thing nice about people from out of town (and it can not be about money, cash, or revenue.)
I'll start:

1. People from out of town bring culture to Boonville.
2. The person who started Boonville was originally an "out of towner."

Next Please!!

I agree, but I would like to say that I am an not a local and I do own a business in Boonville. I have found the locals to be very supportive. Look at Woodsmems field days. 400 local volunteers are very welcoming to the visitors. My suggestion is that we need to get over the idea that we have been, are, and will always be poor. If we need to change anything it's a negative attitude about the community.

Out of town people have brought culture to our town but we have our own - it is called small town hospitality and history. look at all our old houses and buildings. we have also attracted some bad out of town influence, and we could screen our incoming business permits a little better as to what they intend to sell.By the way- Glad for the new Charlie Brown's comng back

The problem is a lack of zoning enforcement. The zoning officer does NOT inspect the rental properties unless he gets a complaint.
He does not enforce any ordinances unless he gets a complaint and I've heard of people calling him to complain and he did nothing. He needs to enforce the zoning laws on lower Main Street. The rentails there look terrible. The people who rent Chamber's house (a trustee) park their truck in the front yard. There is a house with particle board where the front door should be, and there are a few houses that look terrible. The Village should be all over these property owners. They would not get away with it if they were in other towns...even other local towns.

Who is opening Charlie Browns? Anyone local? We miss that place! Hope the food is as good as it used to be!

And this is what happens, the forum turned negative, and then went off topic. Can the people here actually change and say something nice about someone??????????

It's nice to see all the construction work being done on homes in town. This is a good start.

I agree. I wish people would have a more positive attitude. Some people work their butts off to help make Boonville a better place while other people do nothing but bitch about them. It gets old!
