To the Journal editor:
I am surprised that this concept would be considered by the Marquette Downtown Development Authority. How could a proposal so contrary to the very pulse of our local culture be seriously considered?
Dilute this phenomenon that is our vibrant local marketplace by raising fees and opening up to resellers and watch your singular regional appeal dry right up.
Visitors and residents expecting or accustomed to a singular experience of familiar and unexpected seasonal treasures will be presented with a sterilized, homogenized and insipid version of itself.
What Marquette does our DDA live in?
