I've always thought it would be kewl to paint the buildings different colors, bright ones, to sort of doll up the whole area. Would certainly attract renters to the areas, better than seeing them falling apart like most of the empty areas on the dock are. I agree it all needs some TLC from Jan and Juds all the way to Deermont. Mainly, because it just looks like from an outside point of view, that no one really gives a rip about the appearances of these buildings. That is sad.
One place that comes to mind immediately is how beautiful Creek Street has become on the boardwalk. Its really nice and bright over there, and makes one want to visit the shops... yes I played tourist with my good friend the other day and it was fun! Anyway, anything to make something better should always be the first thing on peoples minds.
Think of places in other states that you know of that have old run down buildings just sitting there falling apart. Ya kinda don't want to return to places like that because of the outward appearance. Just my opinion.
I love Ketchikan and everything about it. Some gusseying up wouldn't hurt would it? Peace everyone!
