Letters to the Editor

Last Saturday night was a fun time in downtown Grove. As a member of the Downtown Revitalization Committee, it was exciting to see the attendance at the monthly Gallery Walk. This event continues to grow each time. One really has to appreciate the quality work of our area’s artists.
Several of the stores/galleries had tasty treats for their visitors that made the walk even better. It was fun finishing at Java Dave’s for a cooling drink and listening to a local band entertain the store-filled crowd which included many local young people.
The store fronts continue to fill downtown. The recent openings of The Gourmet store, Studio 31 Photography, Java Dave’s and the soon to open Tiramisu Café and Restaurant are some of the great additions to the existing businesses with more to come.
A big thank you to the city for improving the parking lot on Grand Street between Third Street and O’Daniel. The new retaining wall and steps, decorative lighting and alley overlay really looks good and will be helpful for customers shopping at the downtown stores. More changes will be coming when we receive the recently awarded enhancement funds from ODOT.
Grove is growing and so is the traffic. Please lower your speed as you enter the downtown area and be courteous to shoppers as they cross the street.
Thank you Grove for your support of YOUR downtown.
Dr. Larry E. Stout, Chairman
Grove Downtown Revitalization Committee
