goose coats women goose coats women ´╗┐Downtown Bonham



I recently was looking at property on the square. In my looking I noticed that atleast 14 fronts on the square were empty. Another 6 right off the square were empty as well. That is 20 that I counted and doesnt include anything one block or more off the square like the stretch of buildings just south and across from the post office. My question is what can be done here to get the owners of these buildings to do more to get them back up and in desent shape? Especially those on the square itself. Other towns around seem to have put an emphasis on downtown and fixing up buildings to attract business. Bonham has one of the largest downtowns around but one of the ugliest. I would love to see somekind of project or something that could get that changed. How did the other towns get this done? Is there grants from the state or historical commission that we could get to help? Is there anything that can be done to the owners that are just letting some of these buildings rot? The Peeler building and the old pizza plaza buildings have been empty for years and look to just be rotting away. What a shame.



If the property owners have their buildings in condition that pass inspection, they can let them sit there empty and nobody can do anything.



I always liked going to Pizza Plaza, cheap lunch! That was unfortunate to those guys that the roof fell in on them. Where Marys Boutique was, that building is for sale, but I heard they were asking around $250K or something like that.



I didnt realize we had so many on the square empty. That is on average 3 to 4 on each side of the square.



I agree, wish there was something that could be done to help revitalize the downtown area.



in looking, most of the buildings were asking prices around 180k to 200k. That to me is crazy for most of those b goose coats women uildings. They tell you its history your buying but most of the building need tens of thousands of dollars in repair easy. I see other downtowns and it just makes me sad that we can do nothing. What did the other towns do to get the owners on the same page? Downtown Mckinney is full and always crazy busy, I even recently went to downtown Wylie and it looked so good. Completely redone. Even Paris has full buildings. One of the problems downtown Bonham has, is that many buildings are occupied by businesses or offices that dont draw you to downtown to go into unless its for a specific purpose. Medical equipment, a church, insurance offices, crip insurance, lawyers.



that maybe true but they also have plenty of retail shops and strip malls or major retailers well away from there downtowns and they still get people to visit them. Something to be said for making an effort to beautify your downtown. They have almost a uniform look. Ours still has buildings with metal covering on the fronts from I guess the 70s that look so tacky. Bonham still doesnt have all it needs to attract big retail business like those other cities. Downtown could play a huge role in Bonham. I mean what else is there? They have a choice in these bigger towns where to spend their money and their downtowns still flurish. Why not Bonham?



Your right about what does occupy what is on the square. We have all these empty buildings and very, very few are anything to attract people or business. With all the talk about tourism and attracting tourist to Bonham, that would be something to find funding for. If you get this railroad project to go thru and a lake eventually, dont you think having a restored downtown with more than just doctors and lawyers would greatly benefit Bonham. Seems like a project worth getting people together for.



Its not just what other options the people to the south have to shop at, such as malls and major retailers, its the disposable income they have also. Thats big money down there in Collin County. Fannin County is one of the poorer in this part of Texas.



I would like to see some sort of assistance from Bedco to assist in the renovation of downtown buildings and relocation of shops, etc. here. Maybe in the form of zero interest or low interest loans for renovation, or help with advertising goose coats women and promotion.



man, how I wish we could do something as a town to revitalize our decaying downtown. I love the old look of the buildings that have had work done to atleast the fronts. It seems like as they remodel them they tend to turn them into office style buildings. Need more that promote mom and pop style retail. I wouldnt care if there was an antique shop on each side. I love that about paris downtown. Just get out and walk the square. No reason to walk our square. I believe I seen where in Ardmore the business/building owners got together to form a committee or something to help raise money and fix up there downtown. Has anything like that been done here?

There was once a Historic District Merchants Assn. in Bonham but it didnt last long. They couldnt agree on anything that they could coop to do together as a unified group. I seem to remember hearing that many of the old buildings are owned by somebody in Dallas or somewhere and they keep going up on the rent so nobody can stay in business. In a metro area, most of those buildings would be condemned.



If the down town were restored like new, if there arent people coming into town, they wont stay new long. I have noticed that the Raildistrict tour train seems to have Replublicans and Democrats, and folks on both sides of the chamber issue working to make that happen. That is a good thing, and maybe some goose coats women healing can begine with that and when Jones leaves. I have a feeling that if the train comes it will attract not only a lot of visitors to down town to ride the train and visit shops, but some that come will see opportunity and invest in downtown property. The tour train is the number one attractor we could have to improve Bonham, bring money into town, and revitalize the place, even more so than the courthouse or the multpurpose barn.

I remember that several years ago the parking around the courthouse was redone. I think BEDCO paid for it but I could be mistaken. It made it look LOTS better, plus it made for more parking spaces. They also put in electrical so that the square would be ready for a fair or festival type set up. There is a car group that does something around the square every so often. There has also been Heritage Days. Problem I see with HD I that it is in July. I know they are trying to coordinate with Kuecklhan Rodeo my apologies for probably misspelling it. However it is so HOT then that folks dont really want to set up out there or come to see it. I really dont understand why they dont try something in the fall or spring when the weather might be a plus to the events success. goose coats women
