1. Fill the empty stores in Downtown with affordable boutiques, or crafts, or something. 2. Straighten up the mess in Uptown. Since Kohls and Marshalls were added driving in the vicinity is horrible. 3. People go back to be courteous. 4. Sure pedestrians have the right of way, but AT LEAST LOOK FIRST! 5. DON'T DUMP YOUR TRASH ON OUR STREETS......KEEP GIG HARBOR CLEAN AND GREEN. I LOVE GIG HARBOR.

Agree all the above...but the big players downtown must rally together...our leaders or organizations dont either know how or are unwilling to focus downtown or are perhaps too sensitive to the old ways and the old folks way of not reallly wanting downtown to even exist...we are all in this together...I have 22 yrs invested here...but feel very alone.We need investor-angels to build a marine resort complex with rooms, view, food and fuel!....Bruce "the Winer"

I agree! We need more cafe' style places, and some boutiques or just nice small businesses. Shops like imagine great things, the candy shop, and the beach basket are perfect! More places like those. A good example is cannon beach. Good food, good shopping, good accommodations

We need a decent grocery store downtown. We should also whack down all the tall trees that block people's views. I happen to love the corner lot across the street from the Tides so may all the busybodies leave well enough alone :o) No , I am not the owner, but I wish I were.
