"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange
It's Going to Happen

When the Vincennes Community School Board put the old buildings along Sixth Street up for sale a couple of years ago, there wasn't much talk of success at the coffee shops around town. Who would want those old buildings? What could you do with them even if you got them?
Making an offer that most of us would not think of offering, and actually getting the purchase done has now been completed and today the financing for the construction of Clarks Crossing will be in place. And within a relatively short time, there will be new and affordable senior housing, green space, and a refurbished Adams Colliseum at the site.
Nice work school board. And to Myszak and Palmer - the local developers - "Thanks". Most of the community looks forward to your open house!
