I don’t understand why the city would need a contract with LimeBike? They’re all over Greenville already.

I did not know you could use the app to report bikes blocking sidewalks. That will come in handy like...daily.

LimeBike operates by service agreement. It's not a contract per se, but it does account for how their relationship with the city or university exists.

Currently, the agreement with the city is to return off-campus bikes back to campus as fast as possible. If you see bikes off-campus, they aren't supposed to be there - but city, company and university knows that's easier said than done.

RE: the bikes in Washington, I may know a thing (or two) as to how they got there.

Biked through downtown and took some photos of the Bradshaw store renovation:




Looks like there will be a partition wall between the two sides? Not sure what type of retail they're thinking of attracting with that.

Also, quick update to the theater:



edit: dang it i can't do the technologies. uploading photos
edit 2: or the spellings

Great pics!

I have been a little bit against this whole theater renovation. I thought that a demo and rebuild would be a much better option with all the money they've spent.Looking at the picture makes the space seem so very small. Not sure if more than 100 people would be able to fit inside. Personally leaves me with a "meh" feeling.

I'm sure it will be nice once completed, but I worry if the Lincoln theater will only bring smaller acts in because of capacity issues. I"ll just be glad when all of this is finally done. It's been several years in the making now. Looks like a late summer/early fall opening to me.

From what I saw, I think a suitable size comparison is somewhere between the New Bern Civic Theater and the Pour Haus in Raleigh. Just saw Dorothy in concert at PH back in January and it's a great venue. For the feel that Uptown/Bianca and TPTB are trying to cultivate, I think it'll work out great.

Lincoln Theater may be small, but it has gotten some great acts. J Roddy Walston & the Business was just there last month. If they came to GVL it'd be a coup for sure.

The theatre does seem small looking at that photo...but then again, I guess you have to think back to how small and nasty the Attic was and they pulled legit acts all the time. Sometimes the owners matter more than the size of the venue.
