Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

Thumbs up to plans to abandon the section of Lafayette Street between Second and Third streets in Jamestown. The street isn't needed for traffic purposes, and the owners of BWB, Shawbucks and the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena can use the space for additional parking and for more space for summer events in the area. The potential loss of parking revenue is a wash for the city since the city will no longer have to pay to maintain the street or for streetlighting. During the summer months, having the additional space will help the ice arena and Gateway Station have enough room for outdoor events, which can only help businesses on the city's west side.
