Compromise key

TO THE EDITOR: I attended the Common Council meeting on July 2 discussing the concerns of some business of the street closure that occurs with more frequency downtown.

I was pleased to see the willingness of the leaders of the First Weekend movement to work with those who feel that such closures are detrimental to the business environment.

We have witnessed an awakening of the entrepreneurial spirit in our community, and that same spirit must be willing to seek compromise for the advancement of our common mission of making our community more attractive to live in.
