City has other priorities ahead of wing street

Dear Editor,

The issue with closing the east side wing street just won’t go away.

The truth is, (according to a high-ranking city official) the new walkway will go right down the middle of the street, not leaving much room for a mall. Without a doubt, the ramp will keep emergency vehicles from having any type of drive-through access.

The pamphlets being sent out by the Downtown Development Authority are very misleading as to what the street will look like.

Shouldn’t a design be determined before they ask for support from the public, or is this just another case of putting the horse before the cart again?

How about getting the downtown parking problems addressed first, and finish the 8th Street project before they try to close another street?

I also believe that spending close to another half million dollars on something most of the businesses to be directly affected are against anyway is not very smart.
