Revitalization or Desecration?

Certain Elizabethtown officials were hell-bent on widening Broad Street. So they have cut all the old, big oaks down on what used to be a beautiful street to make way for the "revitalization."

Drive through E-town and see how Broad Street looks now, compared to the way it used to look.

And what have the leaders in mind for landscaping? Do they plan to plant the same old weed trees--Bradford Pear, for example--and the same old generic shrubs you see everywhere you go? Most likely this is what they have in mind.

I am waiting to see how this "revitalization" is going to improve the town's looks. I will be surprised if there is any improvement at all.

According to the store owndrs I've talked to, they wish there had never been an attempt at revitalization, and they think it's a scandalous waste of money that has hindered potential customers from walking our streets and shopping in our businesses.
