|A Better Block project--bikes lanes and pedestrian seating|
Norristown was supposed to stage a Better Block experiment last September, but the Municipality decided we weren't ready for that. "We'll put it off until the spring," they said. Well, spring has come and gone and I guess they think we're STILL not ready. Just like they decided we weren't ready for bike racks downtown, nor for better signage for our businesses along the Schuylkill River Trail, and a lot of other changes that might have helped Main Street..
Would someone please explain to me what we have to do to become ready? Conshohocken, Phoenixville and West Chester have tried, and permanently adopted, a lot of these changes. I'm getting tired of constantly hearing those communities used as examples of how towns can be brought back from the brink while N-town sits stagnant, waiting for what I suppose must be divine intervention.
Personally, I'M ready for change downtown, and I think a lot of other residents and business owners are, too.
