City’s flourishing core deserves more energy

To the Editor,

Re: ‘Barney Building’ sitting idle, Aug. 2.

After reading your article on the vacant A&B Sound building, it brought me back to when my father and I would go for hours and hours there to ponder all the different music genres together.

The building used to have such a great energy to it. It now lacks any kind of energy. It brings down the downtown core.

A market would be the utmost best project for the downtown area. We need it.

Nanaimo is flourishing and bringing in a market could support local farmers and businesses.

I hope to see something spectacular become of that building that has so much potential.
