I know the cost of the Streetscape Project has increased, but let's not sell our downtown short.  Despite the City spending a considerable amount on this project, we are still being given $1.5 million from the State!  Go ahead with the original plans, even if it costs more money.  Let's have a quality project that won't need work in a few years.  Had we passed a higher bond issue in the past and built quality schools, we wouldn't be repairing schools that are only a few years old.  Augustans, let's learn from our mistakes and make our downtown great!

A big thank  you to the Historical Society for plans to beautify a part of town that really needs it!

Augusta needs a number of things, but a dog park is not one of them.
