The City Council voted in 2017 not to have medians on Broadway. That has changed for whatever reason. Let’s look at the pros and cons:
Pro: It will make four blocks of Broadway “purty.”
Con: It will cause problems for all businesses in that four-block stretch, including our biggest grocery store. Problems for EMT-fire and police, problems for city workers for snow removal and maintenance.
The people of Council Bluffs will have to “around the block” to get where they need to go.
I believe in beautification of our city but the pleasure may not be worth the pain.
Medians a bad idea
Medians on West Broadway have always been a bad idea.
They disrupt being able to get to any business on West Broadway.
The current mayor and all City Council members in favor of the medians should stick with their vote in 2017.
Medians just mean I will avoid West Broadway after they are installed.
Matt Walsh/City Council — this is a bad idea.
