I second the letters to the editor against reconfiguring Rose Street. Repave it, nothing more.
Do you remember some years ago when Walla Walla made some streets one way? Well, that did not last long. They were put back to two way.
Unlike that mistake this Rose Street change cannot be put back to how it is now by some sign changes, stripe repainting, etc. Once those beautiful old trees are gone, they’re gone and the project goes into the category of the Blue Mountain Mall destruction.
As the saying goes, “You can’t unboil a hard-boiled egg.”
That stretch of my drive into Walla Walla is my favorite simply because of those great old trees.
Please, City Council, rethink this ill-advised idea carefully!
