  Original Published: 10/24/2013Five members of Mansfield City Council visited Wooster Wednesday to see how changing one-way streets to two-way traffic led to a more inviting and vibrant downtown for the Wayne County seat of 26,000. They're starting the long process of possibly converting Main and Diamond Streets from one-way to two-way traffic, between First and Olive Streets. Council-members Phil Scott, Ellen Haring, Sammy Dunn, Pat Hightower, and Garnetta Pender met with the mayor of Wooster and the Main Street Wooster director, for a discussion at the Chamber of Commerce. Then they went to a new condominium complex that replaced a 125-year-old department store, two years after it was closed and torn down. Condo's go for a quarter-million dollars and are starting to attract affluent professionals. Council-members say this was an information- gathering visit, and any decisions will require careful study. The Mansfield City Council members say any changes to Main and Diamond are likely far into the future.
