Over 200 Meetings Concerning Downtown Redevelopment Since 2006
The idea to revitalize Amarilllo's downtown first surfaced in 2006. Other than the over 200 meetings held to discuss the project, not much tangible has gotten done.
Another meeting was held last night to discuss the project. It was held at the Civic Center. Ironic as downtown revitalization by definition will take some events away from the Civic Center.
The multipurpose entertainment venue, parking garage, convention center hotel, these are a few of the projects that have caused major controversy when it comes to the downtown redevelopment process.
There were many attendees to the meeting last night but to the dismay of some not much got accomplished other that the city rededicating itself to the project saying we've come to far along now to turn back or make significant changes.
