DOWNTOWN SUPPORT
November 17, 1993
To the editor: It was with considerable dismay that I read your disparaging comments about downtown Lawrence in the “Saturday Column” of Nov. 13. Over the 20 years that I have lived here, I have watched the downtown area evolve from an unattractive, uninteresting midwest town into a lively small city filled with unique and delightful shops, highlighted by well-placed sculptures and tree-lined streets. I almost never go downtown without running into someone I know and stopping for a chat, and the sense of community that such interchanges engender are invaluable, particularly after tramping through some soulless mall in Overland Park or Topeka. Having worked in retail in downtown Lawrence, I can testify to the number of people who come from all over the region just to sample the pleasures of spending an afternoon shopping and eating here. Why, in the face of the obvious, should we not insist that the downtown area be retained as the central business district, to paraphrase from your column? Instead of carping about it, why not revel in it?
