Kenneson: The future of downtowns is carless

Posted: Wednesday, January 29, 2020 12:00 am

On certain Fridays in the summer, there is a concert in front of the courthouse in downtown Monroe. And a rather remarkable thing happens. The city closes down Broad Street from Washington to Spring Street. Cars have to go around for just a couple of hours.

People pack into the space between those two roads. Families set up lawn chairs on Broad Street. Kids throw footballs. Dogs wander. Music drifts.
