Relocate the $10 mil amphitheater? Well if "These students have a lot of talent, a lot of focus," the original planning must not have been all that great.

Bob Newell didn't spend anything.Allan Mollhan got federal funds for the floodwall project I think before Bob was mayor. It was money allocated to "River Front Projects " to the Corps of Engineers ,yes the concerts are nice but the main function of all that concrete poured to make the park, are to support the flood wall .Answer to problems of not enough room at concerts the group or act for more than one night .

Let me get this right, Pothole Bob spent 8 million dollars ($8,000,000.00) on Point Park and is now asking for a plan! Isn’t that putting the cart before the horse? That’s $8,000,000.00 of our Tax money, what a deal? That worked out so well now he wants a Baseball team, how many more million will that cost?

The last thing downtown Parkersburg needs is more signs. Over the last few months the already cluttered landscape has been made even more confusing by the addition of signs denoting the new bike routes and every mile of the Half Marathon. Many of the newer signs block the view of existing stop signs so the city adds yet another sign reading 'Stop Ahead' (2nd & Juliana). Private entities like the Blennerhassett Hotel and the Oil and Gas Museum have been permitted to take over on-street parking by posting their own signs claiming possession of parking spots owned by the public. Let's work toward reducing urban ugliness downtown and cut the number of signs to the bare minumum.

PS: Why do we need all those 'No Parking' signs when our $14,000 SmartCar purchased for the parking enforcement department hasn't budged in months?
