    Interesting proposal… my gut feeling says “bad idea” but I haven’t seen the full details of the plan. It just seems like the opposite direction that most cities are headed right now…

    Downtown Lancaster might go one-way

    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

    LANCASTER, Ohio – City leaders and downtown property owners are reviewing a proposal to create more parking in the downtown business district by making four blocks one-way to accommodate head-in parking.

    Head-in parking rather than the current parallel parking would double the spaces available to about 200, said Jim Huber, a downtown developer who drew up a plan that he presented recently to other business owners and Mayor David S. Smith.

Wagenbrenner wants to build the Lancaster Gateway retail and office complex there and is doing environmental cleanup now.

    Lancaster looking to attract additional small businesses
    REGIONAL SPOTLIGHT — BY MELANIE MCINTYRE ON APRIL 23, 2012

Lancaster officials are quick to list the city’s skilled workforce, proximity to several universities and colleges (and the fresh talent they offer), and its location (30 minutes southeast of Columbus) and direct access to Route 33 and nearby interstates 70 and 71 as compelling reasons business owners should consider locating there.
