The fact that the bad neighborhoods are within walking distance of downtown would concern me. People in large, densely populated cities often don't have a choice in this regard. Paducah doesn't fall into that category. There's too many other attractive options for spending $350K on a home.

Hey_Hey -- Do you know for sure the new downtown hotel will contain condos and if so, what in your opinion would be approximate costs?
Thanks,

I don't know for sure. All I know is what was reported in the Paducah Sun. Like any real estate project exact plans and makeup of a building change all the time. If there are new condos built in the hotel I would guess they would start out around $130,000 at least, and more likely in the $150s. The maximum price is hard to predict because it depends on the size of the condos, the services of the condo development, and the amenities of the condos.

Of course there are a lot of questions to condo development in a small market in this environment. There have been numerous projects in condo-living cities like Chicago cancelled because of the credit markets, so it's very possible this will never come to fruition. On the other hand, Paducah has very few condo developments, so there may be an untapped market that would jump at condo living if given the opportunity.

Wow. This a ridiculous discussion. On a related note, would you say Paducah was more or less liberal than say, Crawford, TX?

Quilters have been complaining for years. Their complaints are either about the city, The Executive Inn, or that they just want a new venue in a new city for a change of pace. The quilt show has remained in Paducah ONLY because the one woman who controls it ignores the complaints and keeps it in Paducah. She has a vested interest.

City officials spent a couple days negotiating with the group that decides where to have it a few months ago. They didn't know for a week or two afterwards that it was staying in Paducah.

If the quilters hate the city and the venue, why do they keep coming back?

The quilt show deserves a decent facility and Paducah cannot provide that. The city government is so corrupt, that I am suprised they get anything done. They have made cosmetic improvements, but that's all they are...cosmetic. It got so bad with the Executive Inn saga that mayor Paxton called on citizens of Paducah to open their homes to the quilters and put them up if the Executive Inn was not ready in time for the show. Now if that doesn't look desperate and sad, I don't know what does. The 2009 Quilt Show will come and go and for months after, we will be hearing the exact same complaints, problems, issues, etc that overshadowed the show. BTW, where is that big new hotel that was supposed to be built downtown? Have they even broken ground?

Does anyone know where I can get information on the proposed downtown hotel? I know that the city wants a "high rise" development overlooking the river and park area. I assume it is to be built on the parking lot at the end of Broadway?

Default why not just...

MOVE, if you hate it so much. I am sure there are cities that would love to have one more person living there to get on forums like this and run them down...maybe you could make a career of it.
