When we look out the window at the new office of The Bristol Press, we see a pretty tired, deadly landscape, including the empty lot across Main Street where the mall once stood.
That's going to change soon.
The city plans to put the long-talked-about streetscape project out to bid in a couple of weeks and to hire a contractor to overhaul Main Street by autumn.
We'll get new walkways, with lots of bricks, pretty lampposts and a few shrubs or something to spruce up the appearance of the historic street. The street itself will be narrower, with bumpouts and designated parking.
At the very least, it should look a lot nicer.
I'll write up the details later in the week. [Update: Here's a link to the story.]
