I mentioned in a prior article that the city of Jamestown lost 21 percent of its population since 1970. Despite that, most of us still look at the city as the heart of the community in Southern Chautauqua County. When we have a gathering to commemorate the sacrifice of veterans, we tend to gather in the city. When we have a Christmas parade, citizens bring in floats from many local communities and they want the parade to be in downtown, in the city. Most of the retail shopping has moved out to Fairmount Avenue, but downtown Jamestown is still, for most of us, at the local level, the center of our body politic.
