that a rather large representative committee be ap pointed In order to obtain as much Input from those individuals and groups that not only have a stake in downtown development but a sincere interest

downtown merchants and pro ponents that while the chamber has deservedly taken the credit for at tracting such largescale employers as WalMart and Coleman Com the orgamzaUpn has unwit tingly practiced something short of benign neglect in promoting the cen tral business district If the effort to stimulate com merce in New Braunfels1 downtown Is it will have included resolution of such politically awkward issues as code enforce ment in the building occupancy per mit parking meter removal or priontlzalton of physical improvements paid for with public money and amortization of poor existing
