Letter to the Editor: Bump-outs do not work


As we enter into the winter season I wanted to remind our community of the importance of the Town of Strasburg not installing bump-outs on our town streets.

A friend and I were talking the other day about what a mess it would be to try and clean snow out of those bump-outs when we get large storms. This adds to the other reasons that make bump-outs bad for business, parking, pedestrians, and the many visitors who come to our town every year.

Please let your representative and the mayor know that bump-outs have not worked for Front Royal and Woodstock, and we don’t want Strasburg to be strike No. 3. The town should use the money to improve already-existing sidewalks that are in need of repair.
