Letter: Preserve our historical character before it is to late
Please help us protect the future of our downtown. I am writing to encourage concerned residents of our community to please come and join us on Tuesday July 23 at 6 p.m. at City Hall in the Council Chambers for the next Planning and Zoning meeting to discuss our concerns for the proposed ANB bank development on Grand Avenue.
We do not want to see the city block be destroyed by one cooperate entity. We want to encourage small, independent businesses that make our town unique, quaint and a destination for travelers from all around the world. As time evolves and traffic is ever increasing, we as an entire community need to come up with a vision for our beautiful town and the direction we wish to see our local government take.
We need planning and zoning to reconsider the requirements in our downtown core. I propose a moratorium on any more banks, real estate offices or corporate organizations. They have a place in our community, but they do not need to be in the heart of our town. It is vital for us to say something and help preserve our historical character before it is to late.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
