Opening Main Street to Union Station
an Improvement that Can
be Put Off
Several days ago there was pub published
lished published in the Star a petition to have
North Main street opened from May
street to the Seaboard railroad. This
petition, judging by the fact that
many names which appear there have
been removed from the city for a long
time, is an old one.
At the time this petition was circu circulated
lated circulated there may have been good reas reasons
ons reasons advanced for the opening of this
street in order to give access to two
crossings on the Seaboard railroad on
account of the proposition to build
the, union depot north of its tracks.
However since-then the location has
been changed to the south side of the
track and the necessity for crossing it
to reach the depot no longer exists.
We are of the opinion that there is
no real necessity for opening this
street at this time as it appears that
the traffic to and from the union depot
can be very conveniently handled in
the open space provided just south of
the building. The buildings at the
west side, of the -site next to Magnolia
street are to be removed which will
leave ample room for traffic in that
direction. Again, if there should be
congestion of traffic, the obstructions
on North .Osceola, street could very
easily be removed and in this manner
give an outlet at the east side of the

case has been going on now for some
years and is still being blocked by
lawsuits. The cost already involved

eyes of taxpayers and make them
wonder whether street opening is ad
visable. And, too, this proposition is
one that is badly needed for sanitary
reasons, which probably makes justi justifiable

As we see it, the opening of North
