Streetscape Grand Reopening?

September 14, 2011

The grand reopening of the Downtown Streetscape ran into a snag at the the Sept. 13 VIllage Council meeting, when the waiving the late request to close Flint and Broadway streets was turned down. While Michael Toth and Larry Stumkat voted to waive the restriction, which requires submissions to allow for two meetings (one to decide when public comment will be held and a second to hear the comments), Douglas Dendel, Douglas Hobbs, David Churchill and Ken Van Portfleit voted to deny the request. While the DDA is uncertain of how to proceed, options now are to move to Childrens Park, shorten and tone down the ribbon cutting, or cancel and move the event to October.
