Mansfield City Council is in the very early stages of deciding whether to dramatically change traffic flow in the downtown area. The proposal is to convert Main and Diamond Streets from one-way to two-way traffic between First and Olive Streets. We asked several downtown merchants for their views on the possible change. Squirrel's Den owner LaDonna Secrist likes the idea. Downtown Hair Designs owner Kelly Ball and Don Nash Limited owner Don Nash don't. John's Hobby Shop owner John Sutter is taking a wait-and-see approach. The first step is for city council to vote on whether to allow Developer John Fernyak to have an engineering study done. Then, council-members plan to seek as much public input as they can get, before voting on whether to change the two streets. A decision is likely months away.
