To the editor,
Why, Fred, why? What's with taking pot shots at another shopping district and commission as you set out to establish one for Agricola? (See Erin O'Halloran's "Street smarts" article from last week's issue.) What all districts and their mouthpiece commissions have in common is revitalizing, maintaining and growing in the face of huge competition from other forms of retail and lifestyle. We're about bringing it back to earth, bringing people back to the streets. We're about keeping the various chambers of the heart of the city alive. Spring Garden and, I'm sure, Barrington, Quinpool and downtown Dartmouth will join me in wishing you well. If you need some moral support, give us a call.
