Merchants fight sidewalk changes
By BILL HAHN
City business owners last night voiced their op-
position at a City Council public hearing to a proposal
to expand sidewalks along Liberty and Fourth Streets
and an alley north of the State Theatre.
Representatives fron the Downtown Development
Authority (DDA) say wider sidewalks will make the
shopping area more attractive. They also plan to
plant trees parallel to parking meters already lining
HOWEVER, most merchants speaking at the third
hearing on the subject, didn't agree with the
"We are opposed to changing the width of the
streets," said Milt Rockman, owner of Sam's Store on
Liberty. "In all my 17 years in Ann Arbor no one has
said to me that they've never had enough room to
The widening of the sidewalks will mean that both
streets' width will be reduced by one lane.
MERCHANTS say that narrower streets will cause
congestion in the shopping area.
"My concern is with the narrowing of the streets,
Rockman said. "If you do not have the flexibility of
four lanes, we will be hurting. We're an automobile
city and we should be oriented that way."
Ben Gardener, a stockbroker whose office is off
Liberty, said narrowing the street will cause traffic
Most of my clients want a quick, easy parking area.
They don't care how pretty Liberty Street looks."
They want to get in and out of my office as quick as
"The problem is that the trees in that area are too
big," said Glen Crawford, a lawyer who owns a
building on Fourth Street. "The trucks are going to
beat them to a pulp."
"We need some ideas that are a little more in-
novative and creative," Crawford said.
Rockman suggested that the DDA try an ex-
periment in which they block off one lane on Liberty
as would be the case if the renovations took place.
"Try this experiment first and if it works than I'll
support the proposal," Rockman said.
