This summer, Westporters focused on a state Department of Transportation plan involving special left-turn-only lanes, curbing, sidewalks and more at the Fresh Market shopping center.
That’s far in the future. We should have been focused on a more immediate plan to renovate the facade. And the parking lot.
As customers have noted this week, work involved the installation of spiffy new old-fashioned light poles.
But there was a cost. Gone is some of the landscaping that once made the shopping center if not pleasant, at least tolerable.
The work is not finished. Perhaps beautiful new trees and shrubs will be planted.
And perhaps one day I will walk to the planet Zork, too.
