Big Idea ... Build an Arena downtown on the walking mall

Mr. Jimmy Dix (resident of Winchester) and I ventured out Wednesday afternoon to have lunch and Mr. Dix brought up an outstanding idea that I believe has a great opportunity to rejuvenate the downtown walking mall.  I said, Mr. Dix, you are onto something!  I'll get into the appraisal network so we can figure out the dimensions of those buildings.

The Old Taylor Hotel has the opportunity to become property of the City of Winchester through eminent domain.  The other buildings would have to be purchased outright from the individual owners.

This "Big Idea" would be to build the proposed arena on the walking mall that will draw citizens and out-of-town guests to our downtown.
