Letter: There are better ways to improve business to downtown Roseburg

Skidding to a stop

Someone on the Roseburg City Council must have a relative who is out of work. Why would the advisory committee think that making more one-way streets and creating back-in parking would invite more traffic to the downtown area?

It is already difficult trying to use the one-way streets; please don’t create more problems.

If the city council wants to make a change, go back to two-way streets. Use our money wisely by cleaning up the streets, painting the buildings, putting in planter boxes and adding awnings. Provide another parking lot if land is available, but don’t waste our money on creating more problems and discouraging shoppers to visit our downtown. The potential is there. Please don’t go from bad to worse!
