""We don't want just anybody filling those spaces -- we want them to be successful and to compliment the other businesses that are already here," Livermore said."

ouch, so does this mean downtown will continue to cater to the few elite of Brattleboro?

You are forgetting about the Vermont myth which is sometimes the Brattleboro myth which is that this is the most wonderful place in the world where businesses will magically appear giving us all high paying jobs. It has never happened but that doesn't mean the talking points associated with the myth should change at all.

You might have wanted to wait and pay for the consulting until after the super Walmart is open.

Beware when the consultant talks about his being "enamored" with Brattleboro. We'll see how amourous he is after he gets the big fat check for his "plan".

Lets all hope it is a viable, successful one....as central planning goes...
