HMDA has another meeting scheduled for Monday. The agenda includes a presentation by Capitol Venture Corp. for their proposal for acquiring the parking lot at the corner of 4th Ave and 8th St. There will also be the opportunity for public comment. The H-D did not cover the previous HMDA meeting whatsoever, so maybe we will get lucky and they will report something on this one. It will be interesting to see the proposal for the parking lot.

Didn't CVC previously say that they are just going to make it into a nicer parking lot?

Yea, kinda hard to get excited about a parking lot at such a prime location with way more potential. I don't know that we will ever see another mid to high rise building downtown, but it's things like this that make that hope become dimmer. The agenda also suggested an executive session to discuss the purchase of another property, so that might be something of interest.

Well maybe CVC will surprise us all with some new development instead of a parking lot with trees, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

To me, this is the most exciting the project in the area. I'm really looking forward to hearing more about phases 2 and 3. Phase 1 is great and good for the area, but it doesn't really change the average downtown experience.

I think that they have had 2 meetings thus far. I don't think that they have reported any specifics. Just that they want to improve the community and with the public's input. I'm anxious to here some specifics of what the people across the Guyandotte River think. Bridge Street actually has some potential; it's similar to Old Central City. It may not be easy to see at first, but the idea is the same: find the denser nodes where walkable places can easily be created - places that were often once very walkable.

I'm just anxious to their vision.
