It seems like everywhere you turn, there are rumors floating around. What's true and what's not true? I'm not much for rumors or gossip but if it fits my narrative and gives me something to look to, then. I'm happy to pass it along.

Transforming The Oakdale Mall

I'm hearing that the Matthews family might be looking to buy the Oakdale Mall and turn it from a "retail-style" mall and turn it into a "live, work, wellness and play environment" kind of place.

According to Pressconnects, it could be rebranded as the Oakdale Commons and it would include commercial businesses, public institutions, medical and wellness services, housing, and new retail space.

They didn't ask me, but here are the five things that I wouldn't mind seeing at the new Oakdale Commons. In no particular order...except for the first one.
