Watt's Goin' On?


Metro Pomona, our downtown cheerleading blog (that's not a derogatory statement, we need someone to cheerlead downtown and Metro does a great job of doing so), has posted the most negative item I've ever seen there. The blog post at www.metropomona.com/whatsnew/2008/09/artisan.html tells that the Artisan project in downtown (remember the demolition of two blocks of East Second St.?) has been removed from the Watt website and, with the yellow tagging of the Vault building, we now have a full 3 blocks of chain link fencing.

I said I'd wait until the first of the year to say "I told you so," but it has become much more obvious lately that the project, which was fast tracked, has now been delayed until ????? So we get to look at chain link fencing and a big hole for how long?

We don't mind the empty lot at all! We have a beautiful view of the mountains now and it's kind of nice to sit outside at night and watch the trains go by.
I wish that it were an art park with a pond, sculpture garden....a place for artist in the community to paint outdoors, we could even have art festivals there.
Wouldn't that be nice?

It may be a good thing that Pomona is used to being economically broken. considering our national economy right now Pomona isn't going to change much while other cities will experience a downturn.
