Having a revitalized theater won't be enough to draw people downtown.

An interesting blend of stores and eateries is required to keep them coming back.

It's been years since I've been downtown, but last time I was there it was but a shadow of the place I recall when growing up.

I really liked the old Army-Navy store, for example.

I applaud the city fathers for taking on the challenge, but I have to ask are there or will there be enough groups to use it often enough to justify its cost?

Let's hope so.
