I grew up in Plainwell, and have noticed little concern for good program use or masterplanning. The town has settled for big box retail and fast food chains. Developing a sense of community should be of high priority for using the papermill. Tearing it down would be a mistake. Adding slow (non-vehicular) density to the downtown area could help revitalize the charm and small town feel of Plainwell. As an architect in Boston, I've seen developments work like this in smaller suburbs around the city. I would hate to see Plainwell continue on its path to overdevelopment of cheap short- term retail that encourages cars to drive from one spot to another.
