Topeka council to spend $5 million to revitalize downtown

December 23, 2010


— The Topeka City Council has agreed to spend $5 million over three years to revitalize the downtown.

Many in the crowd attending Tuesday night’s council meeting erupted into applause as the council voted 7-1 to dedicate money for the project.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that supporters included 15-year-old Michelle Hubbard. She got big laughs when told council members that the capital city is “boring.”

She says the city would be more fun if “interesting stuff” was added to downtown.

This is a total crock of crap spending taxpayers money on this foley. Shameful.

Who knows, maybe it will work since so many more people work downtown than in the 1960's when the first mall (White Lakes) was built. I wonder how many thousands of folks do work in downtown Topeka?

I think it is a fourth of what they should invest. too little.
