BJF Viewpoint on leaving the wings on Courthouse

Comments re article 48460 Adair Co Courthouse Being in use is important thing

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
I, like you, am not going to be upset either way, however the wings do present several problems such as flat roof with leaking problems, they take up much needed space on the square that can be used to create some green space and a gathering space outside this glorious Old Courthouse where we can all meet and visit. Additionally, they make the Downtown seem so crowded and harsh with the asphalt rubbing right up against the building.As to having extra space inside for rental space, etc., there are thousands of square feet of commercial space around the square that is available once we can make the Downtown an attractive, pleasant, inviting, and safe destination. - BILLY JOE FUDGE
Thanks for the many excellent points: I don't think the Adair Heritage Association has abandoned the idea of removing the wings as to delaying a costly - and more costly to reverse one done - chokepoint in the common goal of preserving the courthouse. The only downside would seem to be a few gallons of paint which might be applied now, only to have the wings removed later. -EW
