  • Was the searchlight removed from the top of the Williams Tower? I haven’t seen it in awhile. It makes for a much less impressive night sky.

  • Saw it on a few nights ago. Not sure if it is on as much as it used to be. Maybe due to change in ownership?

  • The KUHF-Klineberg piece is spot on. The city leadership must be worthy of the area’s distinguished present & future economic climate. Leaving prospects solely to the interests of sprawl development only stands to repel creative, young people from outside the area. Suburban life serves an important role, no doubt. But no city increases its global reputation among such people by decreasing the appeal to live/work/play near a vibrant inner core. Beautification projects surely are part of the right track. Leadership now has to see that higher density urban development couples with clean, reliable mass transit options in attracting a bright, young workforce for years to come. Look no further than how Austin’s leadership guides its downtown residential-commercial development.
