You would think with all the improvements to the streets and sidewalks that maybe a few things were overlooked.

The new sidewalks reduced the number of parking spaces on Main Street. Then you have the bus stops, which lessened them even more.

What's missing? Handicap parking. No one from out of the area, or locals either, know where the handicap parking is.

There are plenty of signs to warn you where the crosswalks are, though many cross where they parked.

Another area is the City Park. Cities are adding roundabouts. We had one around the park years ago and it worked very well. Maybe it's time to rethink the obvious and bring the rotary back to the park.
