To make an omelette, you break an egg. To revitalize a downtown ...

From Brooksville (Florida) comes this bit of advice for the city fathers in New Albany, in which the word "vision" seems actually visionary: Revitalize by nixing one-way streets and rerouting heavy truck traffic.

Latest push is on to revitalize downtown Brooksville, by Ferdinand Zogbaum (Bay News 9)

The Brooksville Vision Foundation has a new push in an effort to revitalize the city's downtown ... the main thrust of the latest effort is to bring more people to downtown Brooksville by eliminating some one-way streets and heavy truck traffic.

Foundation members favor making Broad and Jefferson streets more appealing to additional traffic by opening them up to two-way traffic. Also, the group wants to move noisy, commercial traffic out of town.
