  • I have seen some really nice setups like this in small towns around the nation. Nice idea to think through.

  • And having a hot dog stand right in the middle would be awesome...

  • Since the city now owns an empty gravel lot, why don't they pave it and open it for parking and just close the street to traffic altogether. The empty lot would exit out on the side street next to the theater and we would still have parking on the square. I know, it makes too much sense to the city to do something like that. Instead they want to charge for garbage pick up. If the city is trying to compare us to other cities (like they have done for years), why not try curb side recycling as well in the charged garbage pick up, that would save a lot of us the gas it takes to take our recycling to the centers.

  • Another example of the city czar's inept thinking.

  • Either put it back (one way does not work) to a two way street that has worked for 200 years are shut it down and make a mall out of it sounds good to me...You ought to run for office..

    But Shelbyville ain't much on drawing growds on the square..very little.

  • I think that sounds great!

    It is nice to go to that side of the square now.

    The atomsphere all together is very inviting.

    Great place for the family! My family enjoy dining at both resturants and the movies!

    Whatever is done I hope that it does not go back to a 2 way street, I was not sure about it at first but hey it is a really not that bad, but the idea of closing and making it walking friendly atomosphere.... not bad to think about.

    There is a lot of things to do down there!

    Kaorke on Thursday night at the 50's & Fiddles place next to the movies and they have live music on Fri & Sat, Movies, and the other resturant Bochelli's awseome. Sometimes when our kids want to go to the movies (teens) and we do not we listen to music next door until the movies are out...if you have not been to this section of the square you are missing out....Mayberry..it is close. :)

  • There was a pickup truck parked near the Capri the other day. It had tree limbs hanging out the back scratching other vehicles as they squeezed by. A failed experiment indeed. Closing it down sounds like a good idea to me.
