Trader Joe's, New Library, What Would You Like to See in Fenton?
Fenton Patch readers share their opinions on what they would like to see in their town.
Recently Fenton Patch reported on an agreement approved by Fenton officials that was a big step for the Cornerstone Project. The owners of the Clarkston Union have also been busy getting the old Fenton fire hall ready for construction.
These are two huge projects that Fenton officials believe can revitalize downtown Fenton.
But we want to know, if you could pick one more building to be in downtown Fenton, what would you want?
We asked Fenton Patch readers that question on the Fenton Patch Facebook Page earlier last week and received a variety of comments.
Many people wanted a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods. Others called for a movie theater. Some people didn't want any expansion at all.
Aye R. Hazelnut posted that Fenton should have no big box stores.
"...One of the reasons that my wife and I chose Fenton as our new town is that it is chock full of mom & pop stores. This is a piece of Americana that most towns are missing nowadays..."
Eric Fox stated, "Some kind of place with things to do entertainment wise would be nice too."
Barri Kuhn Szabo posted, "I love the old style buildings and city old town charm, but if Fenton wants to keep the charm, they are going to have to add more businesses that keep people coming to the downtown area. Sadly, we spend a lot of our free time in other cities that have more to offer. I would love to spend my money here, if it had more to offer."
So what would you like to see in addition to Cornerstone and the old Fenton Fire Hall? Vote on the choices below or tell us in the comments.
