Main street development, this is just some more BS that your government is wasting money on,why don't they bring some real programs here that help to teach our children some real trades, rather than all the scams that you see every day on television,and thats all they are is scams, bring trade schools here,and quit bringing BS,do something to help our people and quit running jobs out of our country, everything that is being developed is designed to hold the people down by our government and not help them, THE ARTS PLEASE most of the stuff is from China,you can buy that crap at WAL-MART

Main Street Artesia is a pretty driveway for a certain local business.

Have fun finding a parking space.

Ever try to hire someone in the county who should have learned their trade in a high school Vocation/Technical school? This county needs to focus on fixing this problem. The few who had this opportunity 30 or more years ago have passed their businesses down a couple of generations and these pompous 'experienced' technicians bs their way to explain why their bill is so high. Sorry they waste everyone's time but they don't even understand because some of the population is dumb enough to fall for it. And forget online reviews from satisfied customers. They must spend their free time inflating their credentials with ghost client's recommendations. The blue collar trades are essential for any community to grow. Keep them strong or this focus on renewal is for naught.
