    Default Entrances to our City

    Having traveled a fair bit down south, I've got to wonder why our city's welcome signs are so crappy. Compare them to anywhere else they have a real sign that is landscaped very nicely, compared to our 'billboard'.

    what do you think?

    Below are some examples

    I agree 100%. We need something bigger and better that says we are proud to be here!

    We actually have a downtown?

    I thought it was a location of cardboard boxes piled up to look like buildings.

    I have to laugh at Bay Street sometimes. The brewery looks like a dump and the old tank farm site looks like terrible. It actually looked better when all the tanks were there 30 years ago. I am surprised they wouldnt put at least a gas station that is open 24 hours a day since most americans travel down this street.

    Very good idea 6th and i think it was talked about a few years ago, but the cost of cleaning up that place would be to expensive and that is why nobody has done a dang thing about it.

    I agree they should have something like a Gas Station 24/7 there and maybe a mini variety store mall as well.

    The customs building on our side needs some upgrading too. It is so old and those blinds in the window look like half of them are broken and bent all to hell. It looks messy.

    Yes i noticed that as well about the blinds and the bulding is very old. This represents or looks like a poor country or town when travallers come in to it.

    I know a lot of people dont agree with this but I would hand the old brewery to Steelback and renovate that place and make it a bar/micro brewery. Pretty sad when a guy from out of town puts money in the Sault for the arena and yes I know he is wealthy but sometimes I see him doing more in this town than people who actually live here,lol

    I personally love a lot of the old buildings! I love taking pictures of them.
    Some need to come down for sure but a lot of them could be restored.
    There has to be historial budget somewhere the city could tap into. This is one of the oldest city's in canada.
