POTSDAM TRAFFIC ROUNDABOUT IDEA DISCUSSED--The Village Comprehensive Plan Committee Member Marilee Ballou said earlier this month the discussions connected with the Downtown Waterfront Revitalization plan included the idea of creating a "traffic circle" at the convergence of Market, Main, and Maple Streets; a sticking point with motorists ever since the elimination of Water Street during 1970's-era Urban Renewal. Ballou says members of the public have lamented the inability to make a left turn onto Market from Maple, and having to go "up and around" to Division or Park Street to get to Market. Planning and Development Director Fred Hanss says no formal engineering has been done on the concept, but could if the interest and funding is there.
