    Hey folks,




    The uses you see below in red have already been proposed in some shape or form on




    But through Renaissance’s interactions w/ the community we’ve taken note of all the different things people have told us they’d like to see downtown, but are not yet posted on the survey site.  These yet-to-be-posted uses appear in black below.




    If you feel like you’d like to see any of these uses downtown, or at least be represented on the survey site, please take the reigns and put them up there!




    Also, one thing to point out is some of these ideas/uses on the survey site like “specialty stores” or “transportation” are pretty broad range topics.  It’s immensely helpful to see what specific type of specialty stores you’d like to see in Bristol– is it a cheese shop?  Or what mode of transportation?  Pedestrian walk ways, bike paths?  Let us know!
