Brick Wall By Liquor Store:
Don stated that Council is in favor of the walls coming down. They are concerned about how to display the exit signs. They really liked the idea of having planters in that space. They did not really like the idea of benches. Council suggested that small trees could be put in the planters, then transplanted in the parks as they grew too big for the planters.
