Vision Detailed for Coleman Blvd.

Wednesday meeting showcases town's vision for new Main Street.

Mount Pleasant layed out its plans for an overhauled Coleman Boulevard at a Wednesday evening town council meeting.

Read more coverage on the Coleman Boulevard overhaul.

The $7.5-million revamp calls for bike lanes, on-street parking, a center parkway and a huge roundabout at Coleman, Chuck Dawley and Ben Sawyer boulevards.

The plan would also do away with a turn lane that stretches the entire street. That means fewer left-hand turns, which has been a concern for some businesses.

As long as there is a left turn lane available at every intersection how will removing the full length turn lane *really* affect businesses? Oh, I'd love to eat there, but if I have to backtrack half a block... Love the direction they're heading. I just hope Walmart or Home Depot doesn't show up with a bag of money and ruin the plan.

Although it will take some adjustment to not using Coleman Blvd/Ben Sawyer as a local speedway, I like the plan a lot. Ultimately, I welcome a safer pedestrian-friendly urban space that's more conducive to alfresco dining, shopping, meeting and talking to people roadside. A sense of community is important. I am excited for the future of Coleman Blvd and commend the Town Of MP for taking this bold step.
