Sorry, Don, but I have to agree with Kim Helmar's group. As someone who has to run the gauntlet twice a day to get to and from work, I don't want to see buses and people all over the only street to Thane Road. Perhaps if the city and cruise folks can come up with an alternative plan to move the locals through the cruise ship area without all the hassle, then we wouldn't have be so negative about this issue.
This is the same issue I had to put up with in downtown Ketchikan. The greed of the "trinket trade" would not hear of an alternate route and they certainly don't care about the locals.
