I am not sure if this is an example of one group wanting to do something big and nice to attract people and the County being like naaah we dont need that. Lets have another art crawl instead. Or if this is a case of just outright trying to confuse and upset people.

Whats strange about all of this is even though they are 7 stops I believe the only one revealled is the Cinema which is a HUGE deal I mean if they are opening with that...whats the other 6? Kind of a hard act to follow.

Also, what is even stranger is the fact that on the twitter and website the LEDA is all like "Keep Lincolnton Small,Dont Shop Big Box" blah blah blah exactly is building a Cinema that would feature "New Flims" be any different? Usually, MOST nicer popular Cinemas will not build unless they are near or in a huge hub of a shopping center. They just wont.

It will most likely never get built but only because Lincolnton and our fellow Lincolnton people wont allow it. It should excite people at the possiblity but all it does is create confusion and soon to be backlash.

I think if that stand of LEDA and otheir in lincolnton. It wrong it posible to grow and still keep the small town feel we need big box store cause walmart needs some to keep them honest cause all the local stuff is closing. we need stuff in lincoln so we can spend are money in lincolnton and create job. sometimes it more important to let that company come or to build that building to improve so we keep the old why'll improving with the new. Lincolnton like i alway said need to stop going back ward and go forward be a model for otheir town show you can keep your small town vaule and looks but still grow

Last time I tried to post links the post got taken down I guess you can't post links in general. But if you look at the DDA's site which is The Downtown Development Association. You can find a site by googling "MainStreet Matters Lincolnton NC"

From here you can check out their facebook page and see the other stops on this tour. I was unware they had released more stops because I was only going by the blog. Apparently, they keep their facebook page updated better.

The website on these signs will take you to the Main Street Matters Blog...but there is nothing there but the Cinema entry.

I may have confused DDA with LEDA btw or both have said similar things in the past on their twitters and facebooks. In either case you can check out those sites and see more stops.
