10. This rock We think the downtown planners are hopeful that this rock will play a critical role in bringing other active, young professional rocks to the new downtown. 0

9. More green things!Is that a garden? We hope they planted a cactus in there like we requested. Either way, this appealing greenery is connected to the end of the raised walking area in the previous photo. 0

8. Orange barrelsThis orange barrel is no doubt part of the push for a more vibrant and colorful downtown experence. We’d say it’s definitely here to stay.  0

7. A second storyThis raised portion of the sidewalk outside of The Works Cafe and Bravo is very pretty, and we understand it may also aid in handicap access to those businesses. It will also make an outstanding and challenging obstacle course for people walking home from Penuches at 2 in the morning. 0

3. Bike racks with styleThese bike racks are pretty rad. And red. We’ve already seen several of them up getting plenty of use up and down Main Street, so the people dig ‘em. We know we’ll be parking the official Insider Schwinn there when we roll downtown. 0

2. Green things!Look, there’s nature downtown now! And we don’t mean the fuzzy green stuff growing on old soda cups near the sewer grates. We’re going to assume the trees will be spread out so as to avoid having jungle animals move in. Although who would say no to downtown monkeys??!!  0

1. Outside tables and chairsOutdoor dining is the best. These tables are for Gyro House customers only, but it’s only a matter of time before other outlets follow suit and add their own.
