program is keeping quality merchandise Weve got to offer something that makes people want to come the councilman He learned some innovative ideas at the one of which would give property owners a new way to use downtown He said pro perty owners in other cities with successful revitalization projects have turned their upstairs floor space into assets by installing bed and breakfast Although that particular idea might not be right in New Goodbread said there are other innovative uses for va cant space He said he thinks that with the support of the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Com merce and the general the downtown area will be a win New Braunfels downtown mer chants considered a revitaliza tion program about three years At that time a survey was made of the 56 downtown proper ty The majority of pro perty almost 80 agreed that additional offstreet parking was needed and 75 per cent were interested in downtown Less than half of the property owners indicated that they were somewhat in terested in historic preserva Fiftyfour percent of the property owners indicated in the 1985 survey that they were in terested in the city restoring sidewalk areas and lighting fix Also during the the chamber conducted studies of the traffic and other activity Croodbread said downtown merchants attitudes have chang ed in recent 1 think theres a different mindset among he The councilman added that if this revitalization attempt is to be the community and all groups will need to put egos aside and work The councilman stressed the fact that cities that have been successful with their downtown revitalization projects have bit the bullet and hired fulltime project He said one person is needed to draw ideas and expertise from persons and groups involved in the A lot of people in this com munity like to nickel and dime things and thats the results they he adding that a qualified downtown project coor dinator would be able to help all the groups and individuals in volved to work together effec 1 would say downtown has the things they dont have anywhere We have the quaintness theres nothing quaint about a shopping center and we need to capitalize on what we Goodbread The councilman added that tax abatement similar to the one offered WalMart because of its distribution and lowinterest loans might be something New Braunfels could He said joint efforts such as the planned pumpkin carving contest are a good example of simple ways to keep the downtown area Some business people already are looking toward the downtown as a place to locate because rents generally arc lower than similar property in shopping the councilman Stammtisch frem Peea i A will be forwarded to the Foundation Trust Fund in depository accounts are set up at New Braunfels National luttO
