Market Street public forum continues Thursday night

You still have the chance to voice concerns about traffic on one of the area's busiest roads. The second of two public forums addressing congestion, safety and general appearance of Market Street is Thursday night. The city will present it's conceptual design for Market Street. It includes adding a median from Colonial Drive to the New Hanover/Pender county border. Senior traffic planner, Mike Kozlosky said, “What we're doing is presenting those ideas to the public. We will then take that feedback we've received last night and tonight, and go back and revise the plans to go back to include the vision of the community.” Dozens of folks showed up Wednesday night to talk about planned improvements. Some of the concerns brought up included limited access to local businesses and placement of u-turns. If you would like to give your input, the meeting runs from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at Ogden Elementary on Middle Sound Loop Road.

Instead of wasting money on

Instead of wasting money on a median, they need to fire up the chain saws and start cutting trees from 17th Street north to where Market Street widens up around Colonial Drive. This section of Market is fine if you ride a motorcycle or drive a Model T. It is not adequate or safe for today's traffic and a disgrace to the City of Wilmington.

Yes, let's just cut down all

Yes, let's just cut down all those old trees, so we don't have to worry about our cars that are to big for us to handle. Get real!
