What would everyone like to see downtown? The sidewalks are almost done. Looks nice. Lots of businesses opening down there. It looks like its coming back to life. Please no bashing the guys running it. Just suggestions on what we want.

thats the point, it's being reinvented, the new side walks and lights, the river walk project, it can be great again. People need to try to be positive. The alternative sucks anyway. I was a river rat, I want my kids to go down there to. We have a very nice attraction where the rivers meet. Folks in this town need to go back to minding there own business and staying out or yours. Just be nice to people and they will be nice to you. Btw my children mind there manners to adults.....period!

As a parent, I provide the entertainment for my children. I don't expect the city to provide for my children. Perhaps your children and grand children would benifit from the FREE public school system I help to provide for them.

the parents need to entertain ther own children. There are way to many of them running around Carrollton unsupervised, everything gets destroyed and tore up. And what's wrong with wanting to have things like Madison or Louisville? I really don't understand people like you. And your talking about the river walk being in your yard? How is that possible, no one lives close enough to the area they are doing it for that to happen. I understand that there are just some people who are perpetually negative and are never happy about anything. I hope you find some kind of happiness or something to be excited and happy about. Life's to short.

I wanna go back to the days 20 years ago when there were delapidated trailers on blocks down there with drug deals and everything else, and back when there weren't any sidewalks, pavilions, nice places for kids to play etc.. It was so much better back then! I want my kids to see squalor and filth every day, they should not have anything nice to be proud of and take care of in this town they are growing up in, that's just silly! It needs to just be junky and nasty instead!

ok so your saying people in there 30's are running around tearing up the parks, spraying graffiti and vandalizing property? HA HA . It's probably your kids since you want to blame everyone except them. I ask for people not to be negative, so please kindly shut up!

Everyone wants to complain but won't get up and do something. Has anyone gone to any main steer program meetings? They've invited the public yet no one other than regulars come. Point park? No one calls the police when under age children are running around past curfew. The co park? It's called volunteer your time. Help clean the place up while you are there. Local businesses shutting down? Try buying from them and supporting them. Nothing will change unless we get the old timers out of city/county jobs and get someone new with fresh ideas and a desire to change. How about joining in and putting ideas to work?? What about hosting more events? Things will never change if people don't get involved. Also use your right to vote!! I've never seen the mayor anywhere, never met him, and couldn't pick him out if a line up. And that's who's running this town?? Out with the old in with the new!! Take a proactive stand! If you think you can do better by all means run for office!! Carrollton clean up and the river sweep are 2 things you can do to help make this a better place! People need to get off their butts and do something. If they don't, they have no right to complain!!! Not saying its any of you. Everybody has their hand out waiting for what they think they're owed. Even in this situation you need to work hard for what you want and maybe things will change!!
Well

i heard not everyone e gets th paper and didn't know about the meeting. Also people with kids and jobs find it harder to be available no matter how much they want to attend and be involved. I'm not sure what to do to make the citizens more aware when these meetings are coming up. Maybe hype them up more with announcements at school, in emails, post at the restaurants and post offices etc. I think the splash park going in on the point is going to be a great addition to our community.

I agree. I don't get the paper and don't hear about stuff unless someone tells me. There's a few things at butler that aren't advertised. They need a community bulletin board or something! One of my biggest concerns is parks and rec. I think it's disgusting that Ramona talks about how much she hates her job a d hates the parents. She should be fired for talking bad about a community service that she is employed by! She advertises how much she hates her job, yet she's the reason the whole program sucks! I heard the parents pulled all the girls from softball and joined a different league. Maybe it's because kind if the $ gets put into other sports, only soccer. The poor baseball teams have broken equipment. Gear that doesn't fit correctly. Helmets fall off. The fields are full if rocks! No one cares!! They they hire drug addicts and felons as coaches and groundskeepers. They should be ashamed of what they've done to our programs! That's all the kids have!! If shorty was doing his job and reviewing things thus wouldn't happen. I heard he's not running again. Thank god! Can't wait to see who campaigns next year!! Anyone else would run because they care to make changes. I will be questioning the candidates on what they will do about many programs!!! In fact I may request a meeting with each one, get my answers and do a write up in the paper!! Carrollton needs change!!
