Assignment: Downtown Doll-Up

Looks like I'm going to have to change out of my blogging pajamas and pay a visit to city hall.

WHAT: Phase I Unveiling of Downtown Master Plan

WHEN & Friday, June 25, 2010 10:30 a.m.

WHERE: City Hall, Council Chambers, 1110 Houston Street

WHY: Recently, the City of Laredo hired Kell Munoz Architects out of San Antonio “for professional services in the development of a Downtown Master Plan.”

Kell Munoz Architects will assist the City of Laredo in developing a vision for the downtown that features a viable mix of residential, commercial, retail, dining, entertainment and public space uses, which integrate mobility in a workable environment that enhances Laredo’s economy, quality of life and sense of place.

A friend notified me that a Taco Palenque has opened up near the LFD store.  Could it be that rent downtown is at its lowest or does T.P. know something about this revitalization effort?

I just hope that this project focuses on more than a farmer's market.  Laredoans like their A.C. units.  And they like trendy places.  I think if they cater to guys who wear Ed Hardy clothing and the girls who like those guys, it can't fail.  That should be the name of the project:  the Ed Hardy Revitalization Project.
