The best of the mall talk
Lately there have been lots of ideas floating around Fresno concerning the Fulton Mall. There's so many it's getting hard to follow. Lets check out some of the best:
ON FRESNO FAMOUS
Award for most creative list goes to Orcaoid - just click the name and you'll see what I mean. A true highlight of the list is the idea to turn the old Hilton into a Hostel-It says Holiday but Orcas talking about the Hilton. With all the Europeans that come through here on the way to Yosemite, it's a perfect place for it.
Let us not forget Craig Scharton, riling people up, on Fresno Famous with this POST.
Overall best list on Famous goes to: Elliott Balch
TOWN HALL MEETINGS
Several meetings were held downtown to get the public input on what should be done. Here are some of those:
-Keep the mall pedestrian.
-Keep a parklike environment.
-Bring more residential housing in and around the mall.
-Increase the number of shops.
-Have more activities and places to go after 5 p.m, including restaurants and events.
-Make the mall clean and safe.
-Honor the current users of the mall.
If the mall is opened back up to traffic, it MUST only be a partial opening. Open up the section of Tulare to Tuolumne and gear it more towards retail. Then keep the section of Tulare to Inyo closed to traffic and make that the entertainment section.
