Recently I had the pleasure of participating in a tour of the “Southern Super Block” of the Fulton Mall that was organized by the Downtown Fresno Partnership and led by Craig Scharton.
As a Fresno native who remembers shopping downtown before the mall, I not only had a chance to walk down “memory lane” but I also got to hear about some of the plans and details for the future. I have had hopes for a downtown revitalization for years, but this is the first time I felt truly encouraged. The tour was informative and gave me a whole new perspective.
Whatever your views on our downtown, I would encourage you to catch the next tour. Ask questions. You will get answers from people who live and work there and who are committed to making downtown Fresno come alive again.
