Editorial: Public Square-- A positive step

(WOIO) -

Just recently, we tried to light a fire under the folks involved in re-inventing Cleveland's Public Square. 

A lot of us have grown increasingly frustrated…You know…With the endless proposals and empty promises that the city's hub was about to get a major face-lift.

That's why it was encouraging to hear about the latest plans for a public square make-over that includes a fountain, food pavilion and concert area.

Just as important, a real time-table seems to be in place now for getting the job done, including public meetings scheduled for next month. 

But let's not forget, we've been led down this path before with disappointing results.  And even now, no one seems to have the answer to the lingering question:  "Who's going to pay for the forty-million dollar project?" A vibrant Public Square is vital to this city's revitalization.  Let's keep the project moving.

Write and let me know what you think.  I'm Bill Applegate and here's the address.
