See for yourself

Dear Editor:

Four questions voters have asked about the proposed land sale of the former youth center property and building to the Art Museum. How tall will the proposed two buildings be? Exactly where is the new proposed semi-truck loading dock for the Art Museum to be built? Where are the existing uses in the city building going to go? Can I still get a free slice of pizza at Taster’s affordable pizza, pasta and salad place?

Come check it out for yourself this Thursday ALL DAY. One of the proposed buildings for the Art Museum complex will be 70 feet tall and seven stories high. Balloons will mark the height. The new loading dock for semis will replace the outside picnic tables and Taster’s. Art Museum drawings will be on display.

Existing uses … where are they going to go? Most probably, the ground floor locally owned, operated and locally serving Taster’s … out of business … nowhere to go.

Second floor city offices and conference room along with the third floor meeting room for exclusive use from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for city, county, judicial and law enforcement officials will need a NEW building as the new fire station, library, hotels and new Art Museum can NOT handle the hours or volume of meetings dedicated exclusively for the conduct of official regular business which currently exists in the former youth center building.

Free slice of pizza? Just bring in your coupon anytime or stop by this Thursday for free kid slices and $1 adult sizes. At 4 p.m., all are invited to stop by Taster’s for a TV taping session on the benefits of NOT selling this important city property. Questions call 319-0771 or e-mail
