Plus, we need an escape route. Banking is essential...cut off Chase if you close 5th South to handicapped...they can't get to drive thru. This is unacceptable. We've already lost BOA for some very unusual reason...seems awfully curious we lose a Huge Bank at the same time plans have been in works to make main an open pavilion instead of a street. Apparently, They have been planning this dream long before ASKING citizens. AGAIN... I will ask BOA about this in Seattle. So Keep your main open from 5th West all the way down to the water.. But no to 9th down...NO NO NO. Again Edmonds people you think are going to come from all over to experience Edmonds will be appalled to find they have to go who knows where to even get there. Then when they finally figure it out they will find no parking. Won't fly.
