“I like to ask people, ‘Where is the next Franklinton?’”
I definitely have a passion for the businesses in Old Town. There’s some change there – I just learned last night that a favorite art gallery is going to be closing. Hey, this is change! We don’t have Union Station anymore, we can’t change that. This town has progressed beyond when they were going to tear down the Ohio Theatre, in 1968, but they did tear down Union Station. Developers still call the shots in this town. And right now it’s about the density - getting as many butts as you can per square feet. And that’s going to expand out. It used to be a mile or two from Broad & High and I think anything within 3 or 4 miles from Broad & High is going to be ravaged. Ravaged has the wrong connotation - some of it’s going to be cool. Weinland Park is a good example - there are going to be some neighborhoods transforming. I like to ask people, “Where is the next Franklinton?”
