    Hopefully the Mayor and the Council will give a complete update on the depot square effort
    And do it on a regular basis!

  2. Carrier deserved every bit of that tax incentive. They turned 46 orchard from the worst house on the street into the best house on the street. They did a very impressive job that no one else wanted to touch.

    Looking forward to Renaissance update too.

  3. Appreciate the update, particularly the agenda for 8/13.
