I Wish This Were...

Last night we asked you what you thought should go in the McDonald Building on Front Street.  Here's what you came up with:

The most popular ideas had to do with entertainment, especially for kids.  Many people reminisced about the old bowling alley and movie theater.  Lots of young people wanted a place to hang out (ideally with an indoor pool).  More food and drink options were in high demand, though opinions varied about what exactly they should be (pizza? Chinese? A bar with a jukebox? A meat store or farmer's market?).

Pretty much everyone agreed on one thing: the building has sat empty long enough.  It's time for something.

We'll be back on Saturday for the parade with a shiny new sign—come tell us what you think!
