A few years ago, the walls of a small Texas town were split into smaller sections that were separated by dividers that divided the town into four parts.
Each section of the wall had its own unique theme.
Now, some of the sections of the walls are being re-designed to make them more aesthetically pleasing, but the theme will remain the same.
A similar concept is being used by some other communities in California.
The idea is to create a community of shared space, like a park, that’s all part of one big family.
Some people are concerned about how much of a community the walls will become, and some of them want the walls to be bigger than the original design.
Weighing the benefits vs. the costs of the re-do, experts say the more aesthetical it is, the better.
If it makes the walls more visible, they say, then it’s better.
For some, the repertory walls, which include a dance studio, are the most expensive part of the project.
They cost $2.8 million, and it’s expected to take about six months to complete.
A group of local business owners, however, say they’re not concerned about cost and say they plan to make the project a success.
They say they don’t want to be seen as the people who paid the most for the rethinking, so they’ll pay the money back, even though it will probably be less than the cost of re-doing the original walls.
They also say the reattachment will make the walls a bit more welcoming for families.
Some of the community members are looking at the project as a way to keep the community alive.
“I’m thinking about getting married, I’m thinking of starting a family, I’ve got my grandkids, I think about doing something with them.
I want them to be part of this,” said one man.
For many, the community will have to pay for the wall, too.
Some local businesses, such as a dance company and a shoe shop, are expected to pay the cost.
The city will also be responsible for the cost, although that is being negotiated with the business owners.
It’s estimated the rereattachment of the original wall will cost about $3.5 million.
If the community wants to be a part of that, they’ll have to find a way, said Mayor Mike Cope.
“We have to do it for them,” he said.
