Perhaps Northampton could take a lesson from South Bend, Indiana when then-Mayor Peter Buttigieg was in office. He instigated major changes in that city’s transportation system which were initially opposed by downtown business owners.

Mayor Peter converted that city’s wide, one-way downtown roads into two-way streets with bike lanes and sidewalks — streetscapes designed for easy and safe use by pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and public transit users.

Many South Bend business owners were staunchly opposed to the plan. But once the changes were in place and the business owners saw more people coming to their stores and traffic actually flowing more efficiently (not what they expected), they became fans.
