    Looks great. Will we see those trees 5 years after they are planted or will the holes take up parking space like in the community building parking lot?

    Gotta tell ya’, I was in Sibley just the other day and it is a goat bang downtown with the bump outs. Don’t do it! It just takes up valuable parking space. You have enough of a mess with the two streets you made angle parking on. Granted, it gave you more parking spaces.

    Trees in bump outs, ok maybe water system in them but long term, roots need growth, they don’t work. Sick tree now what? I was in town today with a friend. 4 door truck with big mirrors ect. He drove down the middle of the road just to offset the parking in downtown, that to me was an eye opener. All that money, sure assess the business owners but it is really worth the time, money effort for downtown vs other parts of the city where those funds, at least in my eyes, could be used more responsibility. Fine, fix the sewer, water system but all this I am not sold on.
