The Borough Council Public Safety Committee considered a measure to recommend that Gay Street be closed to vehicle traffic on Friday and Saturday Nights in July from 6-11 p.m. While the measure still needs to be considered by full council. West Chester Patch wants to know your thoughts.
According to the committee, Gay Street would be closed to vehicle traffic but allow pedestrians. However, streets running north and south would remain open to allow traffic to pass through the town.
The measure was originally proposed by BLUER (Borough Leaders United for Emission Reduction) as an experiment to see if closing Gay Street would lead to a notable reduction in emissions in the downtown.
So please, let us know your thoughts either by voting or leaving a comment.
