Fresno needs to get it together. When I go to big cities like SF or LA the first thing I see are those beautiful skyscraper buildings with charm and character. We are lucky enough to be a city that once was smart enough to build up instead of out eating up top dollar farm land like they do now, with that being said- people in Fresno need to wake up and do something about revitalizing downtown. Those buildings have so much potential. Top dollar potential.
I agree our downtown isn’t vibrant like the ones in other big cities even though we are the 5th biggest city in California. Those historic buildings you see along the Fulton Mall have changed ownership in the past few years. Most, if not all, of these new investors are waiting for the City to open the Fulton Mall to vehicular traffic.
I encourage anyone to attend more downtown events. You’ll meet a wonderful community of people who are working so hard to revitalize downtown Fresno now. For starters, follow the Downtown Fresno Partnership. They post Downtown news and events the most.
