This Thursday (2/27/14), #Fresno City Council will decide whether to restore the pedestrian-only mall or to reconstruct it and open it up to cars.
The Fulton Mall opened almost 50 years ago. Fresno was nationally recognized as being ahead of its time for battling urban sprawl. Now, Fresno is seen as a joke; a city with a dilapidated urban core. Whether the city decides to update the mall or to tear it out, something needs to be done.
The City Council meeting will start at 5PM at City Hall in #downtown #Fresno. There will be a “pre-game party” at Peeve’s Pub on the Fulton Mall. Pizza, beer, and t-shirts will be passed out. This will take place around 3PM.
I’m happy to see this back! I stumbled upon a tour, last summer. Although Fresno was sunny and hot, the Fulton Mall is packed with shade-trees and the weather is tolerable. I learned a lot about the historic buildings, the art, and the history of the Fulton Mall. We even took a tour of the Warnors Theatre; one of the most beautiful buildings in Fresno! You’ll find yourself thinking, “What? There’s actually cool stuff in Fresno?”
