Racine

More development is good......however, there is still next to nothing to do downtown. We need more and different entertainment venues. (i.e. themed bars, theater options, comedy, etc.) More residential just means more people to travel north or south for entertainment.

Eureka! Someone has solved the problem of why downtown can't seem to become the hot spot everyone wants it to be. Arches!! Yes!!

How about things to do other than eat or drink? Of course it also helps if one can get downtown without 7 detours.

Now let's add a different perspective to the truck scenario. The government tries to buy the truck for 140% but a single buyer refuses, now the community at large won't benefit from the income (both direct and ancillary) is lost and the truck sale goes elsewhere.

In addition to better hours, we need to be able to get downtown. Even without the current levels of instruction getting to the lake is hard with the narrow, congested roads. Then of course there needs to be a destination for people to gather around. Bars and kitschy shops aren't enough. …

Caledonians, at least the vocal ones, have a track record of shooing business away. I doubt the "right" company will be able to occupy that space. The greater Racine area could have easily supported another Target, Kohl's or the like, but instead they found homes slightly north a…
