Just how public is Branson’s Landing’s Public Square?

Since the opening of Branson Landing a lot of outdoor activiies and events have been held in its "public" or "town square." The Ole Seagull’s column entitled, “Isn’t Branson Landing’s public square truly ‘our’ public square?” appearing in the August 5, 2007 edition of the Branson Daily Independent and on line in the Branson Courier under “Editorials" speaks to just how public the public square in Branson Landing is.

Among other things the column points out that “ “Basically, the lease contains no provision that gives the city of Branson any real control over what the public square is used for. If the lessee wants to sell beer out of kiosks in the public square, and can do so legally, the city can’t stop it under the terms of the lease. Could the city have negotiated a provision into the lease prohibiting the sale of beer from kiosks on the public square? The answer is “Yes” but what it could have done, might have done, or, in some people’s minds, should have done, is immaterial. It did what it did.”
