There are quite a few things I will be discussing on the blog in the next couple weeks. For one, I want to discuss the failed increased liquor and gaming machine revenue proposal and what it means for redevelopment plans. Also, with the recent decision to not rezone US 51 and Ash Avenue for Aldis, I think the community needs to develop a very clear economic development plan for the north side of town. That’s where most of the action is. We don’t have a good plan right now. There’s no shared vision between those working in economic development and northside neighborhoods. That needs to change.
And then there’s the likelihood of Scovill Golf Course closing. I want to discuss what may become of the property and what the best uses would be. I have ideas of course and would love to hear yours!
These are all topics that I want to discuss in much more detail but I’m in the midst of writing two 25-page term papers, which are major projects. I also have several other term assignments coming due and finals. In other words, I’m busy. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been paying attention. I have!
Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and let everyone know I’m still alive and I’m still here.
