Support Option 3 for the Fulton Mall

Support Option 3 for the Fulton Mall

    1. Petition by

      Downtown Fresno Coalition

The Fulton Mall, which is listed in the California Register of Historical Resources, is the world's most sigificant pedestrian mall and award-winning public art project designed by internationally-known architect Garret Eckbo.  Restoration of existing fountains and art and enhancement of the Mall by adding more art, better lighting, visible signage, improvements to nearby parking structures, solar power, and events planning will aid in revitalizing downtown by sponsoring a unique business environment and an enjoyable and safe destination for locals and tourists.  We don't need more cars and air pollution in Fresno.  Instead, we need more urban parks and places that encourage walking and public interaction.  Restoring and enhancing the Fulton Mall is a 21st-century solution that will be a source of pride for all Fresnans.

      The Fulton mall has beautiful bones. Restore it, and make it the art hub it should be. To abandon the Mall is to abandon downtown.

      We drove nearly 200 miles to see the mall when it first opened and were so happy to see what shopping could be. Please restore and update the mall for all of us

      I was born in the Central Valley, and attended CSU, Fresno. I have fond memories of walking down the Fulton Mall as a boy with my parents. I loved the many fountains and the world-class sculptures. After college, I moved to NYC for further education and a career in the arts. I have the great fortune of gazing out my window at Central Park, a mere five minutes away. Your support for the Fulton Mall will be an encouraging signal of faith in its artistic and natural merits - an oasis of calm in the bustle of downtown industry. In this act you will be ahead of the times, and generations will thank you for your foresight and courage. James Harder

      It is very important to me that the Fulton Mall remain as is, because I have spent many a time there either shopping, enjoying concerts and outdoor events and because it is an historical landmark that should not be destroyed. This place has tremendous significance to those who live in the community or who have businesses there, or just enjoy shopping there. Regardless of the fact that a city council member thinks that there are too many shops that cater to the Hispanic community, which I find to be a very offensive statement, the Hispanic population is not the only one that enjoys the beauty of the Fulton Mall. Just because Ashley Sweringen or other city council members do not ever frequent the area, does not mean that it doesn't have meaning to the community or should no longer exist. Another obvious reason, that doesn't seem to be considered by the city council members is the outrageous cost that their proposal would incur on the city for the ridiculous task of putting in another street, and supposedly moving all artwork to "other locations". Absolutely ridiculous. Proposals to add to the restoration and improvement of the Fulton Mall are much more realistic, beneficial to the community and more cost effective than the ridiculous half-thought idea Ms. Sweringen is proposing.

      The Fulton Mall is unique. We need to build and promote Fresno's pedestrian mall, as well as her other unique features, or we will be just another big city with a lot of asphalt.
