Sometimes the best news isn’t what people are doing in the community, but what they’re thinking. We present a new feature to you about just that, giving you their answers to a single question along with where we found them.
Q: What improvements, if any, would you like to see to downtown Pulaski?
Christie Davis, Washington Street: “Something more for kids. I think they spend money on museums but our children aren’t interested in that. Teens like to hang out with one another but they don’t have much here. They need something with a purpose.”
Vicki Gillespie, Main Street: “I’d like to see more business come in. We don’t have anything. When I was a kid, this was a booming little town. Now it’s a ghost town.”
Emmy Lou Frazier, Main Street: “I’d like to see more stores open and a good restaurant.”
Karen Barger, Main Street: “More stores. Maybe a grocery store.”
Patricia Wright, Main Street: “We haven’t had a grocery store downtown in forever. Older people who live in town, some have to walk. The transit only runs for so long and you have to pay $2 extra to carry groceries on.”
Michael Lewis, Washington Street: “Need to fix up all the stores.”
Jessie Chrisley, Third Street: “They need to get more factories in here for people to work in. This town’s deader than I can remember. We need more jobs. I have to drive 40 minutes to get to my job now.”
Graham Tate, Third Street: “Food. A more active farmer’s market.”
Sally Warburton, Third Street: “We need some restaurants, and better support from the community.”
Jena Hardy, Third Street: “I would love a coffee shop or a cute little deli. Definitely something for kids and teenagers to do.”
