An investor could purchase it and make it into a theater. Or the guy near the boulder who sells art may buy it and turn it into a gallery.

Is there parking behind this church? This Church could be the center of the downtown revitalization project.

In todays paper they have ideas which include widening the sidewalks. I get the vision and the feel but I don't know if it will work.

There is parking issues but there is a parking lot that could be more advertised. I think that all brainstorming ideas for a better downtown Mainstreet is a good idea.

I would be careful on the trees that are choisen to be planted as the ones in the drawing are not right for the area as they are too big. You need to purchase small trees that stay small.

I believe the concept that they are attempting to copy is Washington street Boston. But they must realize that the subway exits on that street. Deliveries are always a super pain in that area.
