Letter: Learning from Chattanooga


— Nightfall has been a big success and helped bring people back to the downtown area in Chattanooga. For those not familiar with Nightfall, various bands playing a variety of music give a free concert every Friday night. It is quite popular with the community and has renewed interest in the downtown area.

Question: Would the Dalton downtown area benefit if we initiated a similar thing and the downtown merchants and restaurants agreed to stay open until 9 p.m. or later during the concert series?
