Re: “Franklin Street at a crossroads

The best thing for East Franklin Street would be if it became such a wasteland that there would be no businesses. Eventually the landlords without tenants and without contracts would have to cut their rents and quirky businesses could afford to move in. Durham's renaissance has come about because for years no one would go there because they feared for their lives, pushing down property prices and rents, and the police better controlled crime. In Chapel Hill, everybody agrees the rents are too high, yet there seems to be a never-ending supply of restaurants and bars willing to pay the exorbitant rents, so I guess they're not really too high, because people still are willing to pay them. They're just too high for creative businesses that would make Chapel Hill more interesting.

And parking. Always complaints about parking. Chapel Hill HAS to charge for parking, or the students would fill up those spaces every day.
