I hope the city didn't pay much for the design. After looking over what's been done up to today they were either drunk, high or just stupid when designing it. It's sad to see everything cut up like it is. The corners are bad enough but the planters and outcroppings are worse. It lacks common sense.

WOW, how very impressive and professional that come back was- would make many people shove others out of the way to get to move into your town----not!!! Oh but yes, as always, you could give a crap less--ya gotta admit tho the design is really interesting considering uptown business is moving out and not in. You would think one of these days the powers that be would use some common sense and get the horse in front of the cart as verses the other way around. But I'm sure you have one of your cocky know it all answers for that too---thanks for the comical sights and reading it gives those around the area some good laughing material.

Billy Bob,
Are you a citizen of Falls City? If so, were you aware that there was a least a year's worth of opportunity's for public input on this project? Were you there voicing any concerns? What exactly do you find wrong with the project? And please be specific instead of just saying you think it looks like crap and is a waste of money. My guess is you won't be able to provide any substantive answer.
Before you speak ill against something that will benefit Falls City and make it a more friendly and attractive place to live, do business, and work please do your homework and provide constructive comments. If you and other do then we can move Falls City forward and make it prosper. And yes FALLS CITY CAN AND WILL BE ABLE TO PROSPER if we all WORK TOGETHER!! We can't keep trying to stay in the past or be so petty that we can't look at the big picture. Give something a chance before you go negative on it!

I'm wondering what they will do when the traffic is two way and the fire truck has to turn North in front of First National Bank. If there is a vehicle sitting at the stop sign headed South how will the fire truck make the corner? How can two full size vehicles pass when they meet at those corners? I'm not knocking anything just wondering if this was considered. Besides even if there was four years to voice your opinion it will not be taken into consideration.

Troubled,

I received the Falls City Journal with a complete description from the engineers in the edition published for this past week. They are professionals and I trust their judgement. Also, any fireman with a brain of any kind will be trained on how to drive their truck and will have plenty of room. That is a non starter. On another note, in order to get your driver's license one of the first things you are taught is to get out of the way for emergency vehicles. Once again a non starter. This won't be a problem. Once again I beseech you to give this a chance. Besides have you been to any other major city or even smaller ones. They do just fine with narrower streets I might add!

I think you misunderstood about what I'm saying, I realize that firemen are trained in how to drive. I also understand that people who are already at the stop sign might not have a chance to move. Why not see if you could make the corner with a vehicle there in a truck that big. I also think our firmen have brains but you can only do so much when you have no room. I am releaved that you agree with the professionals that there will be no problem. I'm not against this I just stated that I think they coiuld have done it a little different.

Troubled,

You bring up a good point that a demonstration of large vehicles at the corners would be useful. I believe it can be done, albeit slower than you may want. But I also think that in the event of any fire downtown, a fire truck would be going straight on 17th from Harlan or vice versa from Chase. Conversely they could go either way on Stone without a need to turn or just straight on Harlan. The same applies to 18th St. I am not sure if the Fire Department has GPS or routes planned out already, but I would think they do in order to quickly respond to calls. I believe that there will be no problem. You should make a suggestion to the people involved in the project that demonstration of large vehicles be conducted upon completion.

Just reading your replies, you are extremely miserable. I have a suggestion, how bout you move and maybe the town will be a brighter place just a smidge. What FC doesn't need is your negativity. Because it doesn't help any.

Thank you. I guess my point was if they needed a firetruck on Stone St. there would be a problem. Those were the turns I was referring to. I agree that they should try those new corners before something happens to see how it works.

Agree about the corners . Its going to impossible with larger vehicles at those corners especially once it is two way traffic. Poor design, not very thought out with all the pickups in our town. As far as public, the city of falls city does what it wants to anyways we seen that with the elevator!

Does it ever cross your mind that more people wanted the elevator here than didn't. People just don't go to the city meetings, there are others that actually call or see their city council person and tell them their views, a lot. This site is either bitching about how the "powers that be" won't bring in new business or bitching when they do. Maybe the city did think things out like said above.....what if, humm that means all the bitch was for nothing. Besides I've been uptown and if 2 trucks can't meet each other and pass with room to spare then the drivers need their licenses revoked. Tell me what was your great idea for downtown. You going to hire somebody?

What methods does the City of Falls City notify the public about projects that will affect the entire community?
Do they show honest effort to include all; especially those low-to-moderate income individuals that granting authorities state are to be the beneficiaries of the funds received?
I found the comment that stated "even if we showed up it wouldn't matter." Can you explain why you feel this way?

It's all in the Nebraska Open Meetings Act and if you do a search you will find all the criteria. Newspaper and local radio stations are used but it's up to the person themselves to either look at the newspaper or listen to the radio or stop by city hall and look at the postings.

I checked last Tuesdays paper and couldn't find anything about the agenda for this last council meeting. I think it is a little bit out of the way to have to run down to the city office to check the agenda. I also think the council people make up their mind, regardless of what the majority want.
