In favor of Common’s new layout

Published: 10/22/2021 2:37:47 PM

Well, I find it so sad that David E. Lewis [My Turn: ‘Unsightly barriers in the center of town’] and others in our community don’t seem to care about their fellow citizens. I enjoy getting to walk across the street to city hall without worrying about drivers who don’t care for pedestrians. There are a lot of people who enjoy having a space to sit and relax.

So I’m sorry if Mr. Lewis and others who drive feel a little inconvenienced. It’s bad enough in other parts of town that people who feel it’s their right to go in the bike lane and go around a car (which is illegal and against the state law) and almost hitting somebody trying to cross one of the many crosswalks in town that don’t have signals.

So I’m for the mayor’s idea for the Common.
