It's very confusing seeing a banner for the five points at the corner of Wisconsin and Main/West. That's the West End...

I am just glad that the banners in the immediate downtown are red.

I am told that the old ones will be coming down asap.

Banners and a NEW slogan are NOT the cure for what ails downtown.

Expect more LOST businesses in Downtown
