Updated City Hall MapJuly 12th, 2007 by Derek Sheppard
First, I’m not going to try and solve the “What’s downtown” debate, but I figured I could lend some perspective. I walked from the Community Recreation Center (the sidewalk) to what I consider the center of the shopping district (just past the four-way intersection.). I usually walk pretty fast, so I purposely slowed down for what I would consider an average speed. It took 7 minutes.
If you’re really into it, I’d suggest you walk it yourself to decide. What’s your take on the location? The remaining plan, by Pioneer Property Group, puts the hall on the current city-owned property.
That brings me to the second part of the map. Describing the locations of all this stuff has been confusing. Confusing for me to write, confusing for my editors to understand, and presumably for you, too. That’s why I created the map in the first place.
But reporter Steve Gardner, who used to live in Poulsbo, said it was still kind of confusing for him. His suggestion: Photos. It’s hard to picture locations based on a description and a Google map alone. Now, when you click on the colored pins for each location, a photo will show up. Hope that helps.
