Well, I have to say that I have never learned so much in such a short span of time! We have gone to the sites downtown to measure at both Scuppernong Books and Triad Stage. We met with the owners of both businesses and learned a lot about their philosophy of business, their purpose and their roles in the community. I again have gained such insight by going into the “real” world and interacting with clients and hearing their needs. Our proposals are for parklets to be built in front of each business to encourage citizens to either visit their businesses or simply wait, watch and enjoy their surroundings for a while. We also had a bit of an overview from the City of Greensboro Department of Transportation and Downtown Greensboro, Inc. They seem as excited as we are! Next Tuesday we will be presenting our ideas to Brian from Scuppernong Books and Rich from Triad Stage. Wow! I have to get my ideas worked out but I am anxious to show what I think would work well for Team Scuppernong.
