Oak Harbor takes the wrong way
July 13, 2012 · Updated 2:10 PM
Let’s see: First build a one way street the majority doesn’t want. Check.
Next, ignore the warnings that a Native American burial ground is where you want to redo the street. Check.
Finally, tell the merchants that the 4th of July parade will not have to use Flintstone Freeway but renege on the deal. Priceless.
The merchants counted on the parade for walk in business from people who don’t always shop in Oak Harbor and isn’t that what the one way was all about: Getting people to shop in town?
