The Fulton Mall, which is listed in the California Register of Historical Resources, is the world's most sigificant pedestrian mall and award-winning public art project designed by internationally-known architect Garret Eckbo. Restoration of existing fountains and art and enhancement of the Mall by adding more art, better lighting, visible signage, improvements to nearby parking structures, solar power, and events planning will aid in revitalizing downtown by sponsoring a unique business environment and an enjoyable and safe destination for locals and tourists. We don't need more cars and air pollution in Fresno. Instead, we need more urban parks and places that encourage walking and public interaction. Restoring and enhancing the Fulton Mall is a 21st-century solution that will be a source of pride for all Fresnans.

throw more money at it, 250 million spent on Fulton Mall this far for a dead mall that will never return to its former glory .At one time it was the only place in town but time has changed . what would make the average fresno individual or family drive to downtown that they cant get closer, safer and better ?

It is a political agenda to were the planners and builders and those with the strings make the money . Build it and they will come, like chuchanci park that Fresno had to sale because it couldn't afford? How about all of those great jobs that project was to bring and bring down town alive again? People don't fall for the same lies and the same people behind these projects, they are in this for a reason and its not for you Joe public that lives in Fresno .
