As reported yesterday on the city beat blog, the city has finished purchasing the properties needed for the river front park. This was the first thing that got me interested in city politics. I envision a day when every week you can head downtown and stroll along the river, maybe catching a live band on friday nights, followed by dinner at one of our great restaurants. I want downtown to be a center for the region, drawing people from the city, Stafford and Spotsylvania. It could be the breakout location for local bands.
The articles report that we will have to wait a little longer due to limited park development funds at least they now own the properties.
