Those buses ran only during the lunch hour, while the new downtown circulator would run from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week, he said.
It has potential to be COTA’s only free service, should a public-private partnership arise, Stutz said.
1) It should run to 5th Ave to encompass the SN. That is what most visitors want to see and it will help to alleviate parking issues.
2) It doesn’t need to run all day or even everyday.
3) It should be free to riders (small change is a hassle, needs to be simple) and they should start building those private-public partnerships ASAP. Everyone will benefit.
This could be very good if implemented well.
I doubt anyone would complain about their beer menu or selections.
looks at floor and quietly walks to the corner.
The Starbrick brown ale, listed as an IPA from Jackie Os brewery in Athens, Ohio ($5), is almost dark enough to be a stout. It has a malty, bitter edge that works with a wide variety of food but lacks the complexity of some competing brews.
That tells you a great deal about the attention to detail at this place
I doubt anyone would complain about their beer menu or selections. The Crest will be fine. They do need to put more attention to organizing their service though. As with most places there is more than one aspect that needs to be looked after. It is already 10x better than its predecessor.
When I saw this was bumped I was hoping they were opening up a new place.

i know that spot has been looked at as a possibility. from what jake says he’s really doing his homework on finding a good location.
Good to hear. I also agree with the others and think that the place across the street from him would not be a good choice.
I am sure a central Trader Joe’s would be a hit and bring people in from the surroundings. I think though that there is sufficient parking on that lot for a 12,000 to 20,000 sq ft store. Most Trader Joes are around 12,000 sq ft. I am guessing the current GE is around 35,000 sq ft.
I think it would be good for the area and I think their unique brands would compliment more local produce being sold at the North Market if it were to expand. I can imagine people coming in on Saturday morning to get fresh Ohio veggies from a beefed up NM and stopping by TJ’s for the staples. Win, win in my book.
The French Market coming to the Common’s also seems to be focusing on perishables, and prepared foods. As with the discussion of Lucky’s in Clintonville competition is just part of the grocery business and often helps stores focus on their strengths.
Hill’s has a strong following in the upper income segment and I don’t see Trader Joe’s taking away from their gourmet business targeting older downtown residents and office workers.
I did see someone leave their CoGo bike unattended outside when they dipped into the SN UDF. I know a lot of these people may not be bike savvy yet but that is pretty dumb.
I think there will be a teething process. I assume only the stations have docking data and no enroute tracking of bikes. They are pretty noticeable so other than joy rides or being shipped for resale in China I think stealing them wouldn’t be top on the list.
So those are the bicycles riding all over the sidewalks.
I saw someone riding one down the grass hills in Goodale Park this morning. I am afraid some people already have the rental car mentality.
Since attorney fees are capped at 20 percent of damages and the settlement payment is tax-free, Chong will collect at least $3.2 million, Iredale said. Chong, now an economics student at the University of California, San Diego, said he planned to buy his parents a house
I don’t think he is saying it is weird and scary to him though. He is just giving them the age old ‘knowing nod’ that he was once them and they will be him someday.
this argument does seem to have class considerations…poor folks drinking in public = vagrancy, rich folks drinking in public= entertainment.
+1 Good point,
A “Dry” Olde Towne East Improves Quality Of Life, Residents Say
November 12, 2012
The beauty and elegance of Olde Towne East is clearly evident among the homes along East Broad Street. But travel south a few blocks to East Main Street and that elegance is gone. Residents say the deterioration of that part of Olde Towne East was fueled in part by the presence of small convenience stores.
“We had a proliferation of what we would call corner carryouts,” says Kathy Webb, captain of the local block watch. “Their primary business was to sell to the lowest economically disadvantaged. We just had way too many carryouts and just far too much availability of alcohol.”
Resident Mike Moore called carryout owners irresponsible. They would do anything, he says, to make a fast buck. Their clientele continually disrupted life in Olde Towne East.
“There was a lot of loitering; a lot of drinking on the sidewalk;, the litter was atrocious, people would just throw the cans or the glasses down,” Moore says. “What I’ve seen, there was selling to minors, public urination, drug dealing, just all of those undesirable things that you don’t want in a neighborhood.”
Well dry until you build a craft beer carryout at Oak & Parsons ;) Realistically though I understand their point.
^ that comment made my day.
