Downtown Advistory Committee Members

Below, courtesy of an email sent by councilwoman Jane Adams, is the list of members of the Downtown Advisory Committee mentioned last week:

Jack Langowski – Chairman
Bob Bleyer – Bank Of Carbondale
Dan Boeckman – SIH
Marie Bukowski – Director of the School of Art and Design SIU
Sally Carter – Owner of Hangar 9
Meghan Cole – Director of Carbondale Main Street
Nathan Colombo – Marketing Consultant
D. Gorton – Photojournalist and property owner
Kristin Gregory – Former Executive Director of Carbondale Chamber of Commerce
Adrian Miller – SIU student
Melissa Parson – Owner of Pagliai’s Pizza
Stephanie Pink-Harper – Political Science Professor SIU
Elaine Ramseyer – General Manager of Long Branch CafĂ© and Bakery
Pradeep Reddy – Pediatrician and property owner
Kris Schachel – Sustainability Director SIU
George Sheffer – Owner of Murdale True Value
Jason Sigler – Marketing Director for High Line Ideas
Dan Terry – Restaurateur and property developer

The committee will have no direct control over the upcoming developmental plan for downtown as the city plans to hire a professional firm to write it, hopefully with input from the committee. Not sure why the city doesn't want to have someone from SIUC develop the plan as someone from the university would have a much more intimate understanding of the community than an outside firm.
