I know this comment won't be well received, but does anyone really care about our dirty little square? Times have changed and people are not interested in looking at overpriced antiques or learning to square dance. This is a valiant effort for those who wish to cling to the past.

The local downtown alliance is a good thing, yes, a good thing for the local down town alliance and are self serving. They rented/bought buildings on the square cheap because there is no parking on weekdays. During the weekends the square is completely empty. What does that tell you? My comments are not intended to look like complaints but concerns about what actually is the problem and why attitudes need to change before things get any better.
They themselves allowed this place to close down during the weekend for not being opened in the past and the chamber did not help in this matter either. They should be supporting the entire city not for themselves & places just off the square.

I am sure other businesses in Lewisburg would like to use the square for advertising & a place to gather people who may spend money with them too. They want you to come and have fun, & spend money with them and only them.
The problem we have is the locals set the standard for Lewisburg long before any outsiders moved here.

20-30 years ago was just like today. Further back in time they gathered in the square to trade amongst themselves (also self serving) and shunned the local businesses using the barter system & supported "family named" businesses only. Today they want to revisit those days? I like the car shows, I like most the food but what I don't like it is the hating attitudes which they will deny to their deathbeds. Do the farmers pay taxes on their goods, or does that take money out our system from businesses that collect & pay taxes & is that also self serving?

I talk to a lot of folks & it isn't the outsiders people dislike in the county, it is the long-time locals who for some reason choked out any love from outside communities and it is based on attitude towards outsiders. They want their money from visitors then they want them leave because you aint from around here attitude. The persons who should be supporting the city and county is the chamber. The only advertising they really do are for the big boys who pay them additional money to qualify them to get any real advertising.

That is a shame & whoever came up with that idea is also self serving. They need to treat all members equally, not all of the businesses are bankers & other big businesses who can afford it. The small businesses are already constantly fighting the local boycotting which goes on because they are not from here & the lack of outside shoppers coming to Lewisburg because of the attitude they madel by themselves. The folks who have been here forever need to accept they made a mess & need to change their attitudes before this place can ever be anything worth driving to. It is a shame I have to come on topixs to share my thoughts today. I have tried face to face with those who can make changes but they are into denial & just give me the deer in the headlight look.

When we moved here many, many moons ago, we were treated great, that are the people we used to fix up the farm and bought our properties from. Once they got what they wanted, we were shunned. It happens to many people here, just ask.

Another thing, look up TN Car shows on the net, nothing about Lewisburg. Are they really trying to bring folks here? It is a half butt small town effort. The show is really just for the local collectors to have fun with other locals and folks close to our county they already accepted. I believe the way they the DTA is running things, they are just spinning their tires and need to get a grip on reality. Nobody who is on the DTA wants to be said to sound negative and address these messy issues, that is why we have what we have today.

Unfortunately I will not be able to attend this weekend's event. I have an outside the area family matters to attend to which were scheduled weeks ago. I wish their efforts the best. Hopefully they get the hint and bring in new blood or at least listen to what is said and instead of writing it off as being negative.

I copied the above concerns to your face book page, can you answer there is you cant here?

WOW, that was fast as soon as someone ask the question on youR face book page you deleted it and fixed so i could not comment again, this is the perfect example that you are closed minded and only out to fault those who ask questions. you ask for input but yet you delete it off.....that makes me really want to get involved with you folks, NOT. So why do you even ask if you only want certain comments, sometime you have to take the good with the bad, i have read the comments again and find nothing of offence to you or your group, yet it did not agree with you, so your answer was to remove it.. yea you sound like a good group to me....

Look at car shows cruise in etc, nothing. A lot of other places around here are easily found. They may want to join up with the major listing instead of the hard to find listing. If I can't find it, nobody else can.

guy thats just looserburg for you, you ask them to do something they did not think of first so...your a stupid jerk who is just trying to stir things.... sorry guy but thats how they make me feel when i suggest something, thats why i gave up on them and began to question more things, but again don't question to much or they will let you have it. but i have also found there are several good people wanting change for the good of the town. this is such a nice looking town for the most part and most folks here do care, its just those few who will hang you for trying to step outside the box, and thats what keeps a lot of folks scared to come fowared for fear being prayed upon buy those who control.

will you have more then the 10 or 15 folks show up like last time, i mean really must we block the square for this....i think this is a waste of space and time to block traffic , once a person gets hit by a car or a child is killed by traffic then you will want to claim you ment well, so when a kid dies it is on you guys head for putting them in the street...what the heck do we have rock creek for if your going to block traffic every few weeks,and put folks at risk.
