Editorial—Dusting Off PFP’s Plan
The new Walhalla City Council is moving to take a stab at the Partners for Progress Plan for a streetscape project in downtown Walhalla. When the plan was completed a few years ago, a scare ran through the downtown that the plan would make so many changes that they would be counterproductive to the benefits.
There appears to be consensus among the city’s new leaders that a streetscape must truly be a cooperative partnership. And, during the August 21 council meeting, promises were made that all affected are to be consulted and opinions valued. That’s important for no other reason than an assurance that regardless of what changes are made, that no merchant’s customers will be inconvenienced, whether they arrive on foot or by car.
It’s the 21st century, and it looks like Walhalla‘s downtown is in line for something of a remake. What kind of a remake? Stay turned.
That’s our view. What’s yours?
