5 ways to go

When we started this plan for the Black's Building,we started with the following concept. No. 1 save the building by looking for a plan that would satisfy the various need and wants of the community. No. 2 work with as many citizens as possible to come to the answer.

There are 5 ways the city counsel can choose to go. Following is a listing of the 5 choices.

1. Current Plan: For several years the historic group and several citizens worked on ideas that came to a set of architect plans for the Black's Building that arrived at the city this last January.

2. YDC Plan: The plans presented by this group wants to tear down the building and build a plaza.

3. Renovation Plan. The plan presented here to date on this blog.

4. Do nothing Plan. This plan proposes to leave the building as it is for now.

5. Sell the Building. Sell the building and return the monies to the fund.

I am currently working on a way to present all of these ideas on this blog or a linked group of blogs. I will also be putting up a place for you to vote on the idea of your choice. As always the author of this blog is open to all comments and suggestions.
Thanks Don


  1. I hope everyone will realize there are more than two ways to go... hopefully the City Council will consider what will be the most cost effective and serve the citizens and business owners the best! But I would say there is a 6th idea.... put the entrance to Miner Street on 3rd St. and block off a small portion of the road to make a plaza... then do more cost effective things with the Black's Building.
