ditto...well said. It seem like Charleston is always playing catch up to all the development they put in the place. Downtown and in the outskirts as well. The fact that bike paths only got put in the past year on upper East Bay is a sad statement for this city. Public parking, public transportation, more bike routes, easier access in and out of the city, anything to help the people that work in the service industry downtown with parking, etc, etc.
How about residents first, tourists second.
and this isn't the west coast-land of gated communities. Thankfully. This is Park Circle where community means a lot and to alienate people by accident or purposefully, says a lot about Mixson right there.
I'm weighing in a little late on this, but as a Park Circle resident, I definitely have mixed feelings about Mixson. When the market first opened, I was super excited but after several shopping visits with absolutely no acknowledgement of my presence or help being offered, I was definitely put off. Seems like you have to be part of some social click to be greeted or even acknowledged. I don't feel open arms coming from Mixson and would love to sit by their gorgeous pool and enjoy the amenities, but yet again, I don't feel welcome. Maybe management should look at who they have running and representing their place. Yes, they have had many open community events but that has strictly been for their own benefit to promote their property
If the rail line at N. Rhett is going to be in constant use, can't they pony up the money to build an overpass to go over the track and keep traffic flowing on N. Rhett. And I understand the comment above, the rails are already in use, is it just going to be more of a constant? Don't get me wrong- I dislike the trains in the neighborhood. It's a crap shoot everyday to take my chances at either N. Rhett or Montague but it is still a livable situation.
Sounds like a great restaurant addition but is that what East Montague really needs, another restaurant? I live in Park Circle and will take all I can get, but how about getting some retail over there. Right now it seems like all we have are restaurants and banks. Give me a place to go shopping, something other than restaurants to bring people over to our great neighborhood. Come on Merchant's association- do something to get some variety in our neighborhood.
