As a frequent visitor to Ashland, I share the concerns of local residents about maintaining the character and charm of this unique city.

The plaza is supposed to be a happy place for people to gather. There's no reason such a depressing color should have been used, if anyone had been paying attention. I read that the original color was salmon, so why did they change it?
PROP: GOOD QUESTION CHRISTINE. IT WAS A TOTAL MIXUP. SALMON PAVERS WERE APPROVED AND SHOWN ON THE FINAL COLOR RENDERINGS, BUT TWO PEOPLE ON THE ART COMMISSION PICKED THE DARK GRAY UNBEKNOWNST TO ALMOST EVERYONE, INCLUDING MOST COUNCILORS. THE PROCESS WAS TOTALLY FLAWED. IT'S SINCE BEEN MODIFIED IN PRINCIPLE, BUT THE PAVERS MUST BE CHANGED. WE ARE ALL WORKING TOWARDS THIS GOAL!
