Elsewhere there were other things to note also.
It looks like the Dome Building is getting a paint job to match the Kirkbride Building.

A New Sidewalk by the Police Station?
In the renderings accompanying yesterday's article about static on the proposed UGM Shelter, one elevation showed a new sidewalk on the north side of Division Street at Commercial.

Ward 8 Election
When you cross the river going west into West Salem, just to the right of the ramp to Edgewater and Wallace, the real estate office has a large banner resolving the City Council race to a referendum on the Salem River Crossing. Even the sign colors are coordinated with the preferred candidate. It will be interesting to see if the race truly becomes a contest over that one single issue. (And if you think the election does hinge on this one issue and you favor pushing the SRC for the near-term, that's a clever sign placement, it must be said.)
