Finding the balance

Some 40 people crowded into one of Newman Furniture's former downtown homes Monday night to hear first-hand -- and respond to -- some of the ideas for putting a section of Broad Street on a "road diet." First proposed within Duany Plater-Zyberk's (DPZ) 2008 vision plan for Camden, the basic idea is to calm traffic on Broad Street between DeKalb and York streets by narrowing the U.S. highway from four lanes to two and, possibly, introduce angled parking.
