One recent night I met a group downtown in Marietta to see “The Summer of Daisy Fay” at the newly reopened Marietta Square Theatre. The square was buzzing with people, shops were open late and restaurants full. Yet we all were able to find places to park! I parked in the block behind Shillings. When we left the play about 10, the crowds were gone. After our group went their separate ways, I had a long solitary walk to my car, that was the only one left in the lot.
Yet, I felt no uneasiness at all! The clean and well-Alighted Square and parking lot gave me such a good feeling — like walking to and from plays in NYC when Rudy Giuliani was mayor!
Thank you to all who have worked so diligently and tirelessly to make Marietta square such a vibrant — and safe — place.
