I can relate with some of this frustration, but then I remind myself of how much has changed. I moved here in 2014.
The Bank of America Tower, Charter Square, Block 83 I, Dillon, FNB Tower, Park Central NH, Advance Auto Tower, Dartmouth Apartments NH, AC Hotel NH, Peace Street Apartments/Publix, Wegman’s/Hampton Inn, Origin, and almost 301 Hillsborough and Smokey Hollow II has opened (I avoided bullets to prevent very large post).
There have been new bus routes added and this year the Glenwood package will be great.
What I have come to the conclusion is that it’s not really fair to expect a whole lot of change in a short amount of time. The best thing to get what I want in a short amount of time is to move to a city that already has what I want. I want a better transit system with better frequency. I would love to have some more attractions and baseball. Unfortunately I am not expecting to see all of my requests fulfilled anytime soon. What keeps me here realistically is my job and the cost of living.
It’s not wrong to want more from the city, but it will take time. I’m sure you know this, I just want to add to the rant. It is definitely frustrating that things aren’t done quicker.
