It's exciting to see that the Fulton Mall and downtown Fresno will have a chance to change for the better. Opening the mall to traffic will be the beginning so that Fresno can have a great downtown. Pedestrian malls are models of failure.
Our historic buildings will be saved and property owners plan to restore and invest if the mall is open. The art and trees will be kept so I can just imagine how beautiful downtown will be in the near future.
Best of all, no local tax dollars will be used for this project. Many people who oppose it don't even shop in downtown or are not well informed of the many advantages in opening the mall.
If we stay the same, we will get more of the same. It's time to change and move forward. I believe in downtown Fresno.
