With Apologies to Joni Mitchell

July 22, 1953 Oshkosh Northwestern 

To paraphrase Joni Mitchell's song, Big Yellow Taxi...pave paradise (Menasha's Fox River) and put up a parking lot?    I wonder how long the City Council entertained this scheme!

  1. Honestly, downtown needs the parking to stimulate the businesses down there (they come and go and I bet I couldn't name half a dozen who've been on main street since the 80s).

    Losing the marina and allowing for (the more common) ground business seems like good financial sense to me.
