I love going downtown. But the stores need to be open at night, open sooner weekend mornings, and open Friday and Saturday night. Be open when the people that work 8-5 M-F can shop.

Somewhere that sells fresh produce. Doesn't have to be a big place, but something would be nice.
More porn shops and liquor stores. Every good downtown has those.
Be not in Kansas
We'll all come down to the bus station to say good-bye when you move away.....
What bus station?
Small businesses with less interference from the city. If someone wants to find a way to profit with less overhead the city shouldn't create codes that make this more difficult. If one wants to sell pita's from a small stand at peak bar hours the city shouldn't create a code that overtly shows favoritism to the pita shop with the most overhead...
People with money.
Absolutely, Ron! What good is a downtown shopping and entertainment area when the average person has little or no money to spend there?
