Why are all the trees in downtown Lewisburg being cut down. Also what are we doing in the spaces where the trees once stood? It appears that a new cobblestone walk is replacing our concrete walks. Is this something we the citizens approved? Please enlighten me. WHY?

Pollen, bird crap, birds, root system breaking up streets and sidewalks.
You think a true nazi would ask permissionů? Jokes on you!
Handicap parking unless they want fined would be my guess.

Some people want to live in the old west ..but then they will be the one at a county meeting bitching about everytthing the county wants to do to improve the place...so basically...if the sidewalks bust up they bitch till they decide to fix them then they want to bitch because they r fixing things....lewisburg is much better than wss...hell they dug up all their roads for water...and now don't have the money to pave anything because mr.chief had to waste the cities mobey taking the mayor to court...if this county would get there frigen heads out of there ass then it would turn around ...u bitch about JJ....but if he left and shut the hotel down u would bitch. At him still...be thankful for what u have here...and if u don't like it then move

Trees roots damaged the sidewalks, sap, bugs and pollen are making a mess on the sidewalks and roofs of buildings. They will be putting in additional park benches like they have in front of city hall. People DO sit on the park benches on main street. I work downtown and they are much needed. Tourists and locals sit on the benches throughout the day. Should be completed in the next few weeks. Will look nice. Stop HATING!

You have got to love your shade trees, they keep us out of direct sunlight, they not only provide shade but they improve our air quality and at the same time, ther're a save haven for animals, birds Etc; No I'm not a tree huger! I feel that it's OK if a tree is taken down as long as that tree is replenished with another. I love to hear the birds singing to me as I open my eyes in the early morning hrs, and the little squirrels playing in our trees, and with out the trees I would not have the peace and tranquility that I enjoy so much. That's all. NN

Lewisburg is going to hell in a hand basket. Little by little it's small town charm is going away.

I'm not a citizen of your State although I love WV, I've been there many times, it is one of the most beautiful States I've visited. It belongs to you! why do you let your Town run down? Your local government is in place to serve you, you as citizens should attend you council meetins, get to know the council members, make friends with them. They need your input to get problems solved, I've seen some on here browbeat their Mayor, Council, their policeman, what good does that do? You say it's none of my business! Well it is my business, cause Me and my Husband like to go there, he likes to golf out there and at the little Course near Gauley Bridge and a few other places we like to visit. Well I sure don't like the thoughts of your Town runing down the way you say it is. Good luck

There seems to be a lot of whiners on the topic of improving our 'Cool Little Town of Lewisburg'. The people that don't want change or improvement are the same ones that do nothing, while watching others work and accomplish things. All the while, criticizing anything that is done. Instead of whining and complaining, why don't you get off your collective lazy a*ses, and do something constructive that might make a difference? I love this area, and enjoy all of the amenities it has to offer. If you don't like the nature of things, the improvements, the new businesses moving in, and how the town is being run, then you have the choice to change things. You can like it, or leave it. It's your choice. Move somewhere else. It's a free country. If you really loathe it here so much, move to Baghdad.
