Pine River Revitalization
One of the ways that the Pine River Revitalization groups hopes to continue to bring interest to our Downtown is through aesthetically interesting and unique elements. A suggestion that is creating quite a bit of intrigue is the idea of Plaid. Not just any plaid but the Paul Bunyan-esque red and black buffalo plaid. PRR is looking into the possibility of flags along Barclay in this plaid. People like the plaid idea because it can speak to the different histories of the area - agriculture, logging, trains, etc. What do you think?
The PRR group is also looking into bike lanes along Barclay. This would offer a clear path for bicyclists traveling on the Paul Bunyan Recreation Trail to visit downtown Pine River and the Dam Park.
Downtown/MainStreet ---> Pine River Revitalization
Last month at the MainStreet/Downtown meeting- - two big discussions took place. One around what to call the group - the working name is Pine River Revitalization!
The other big discussion was around a mission statement - the working mission is: Provide a Thriving, Sustainable Community with a Compelling Identity.
How do you feel about the name and/or mission? Share your comments at the next meeting - Tuesday, 2/19/13 @ 6pm at the Depot.
Next for Barclay/Downtown
What's next for Barclay? Let's discuss and decide! Many terrific ideas where raised at the two meetings in October and NOW it's time to make a plan. Help make the plan & enact change. December 19, 2012 @ Jr's No. 19 6-7pm.
There are some great 6 word memoirs in the Complete Streets document & really cool ideas in the Barclay document.
Main Street Meetings
Time to talk about some options for Barclay Avenue- - Put these meetings on your calendar!
Easy local transit- Ride the Bus
Want to skip a few miles on your car? Instead of driving short distances around town - consider the Ride With Us Bus.
The bus needs more riders to keep serving our area. Give it a go!
