No Action On Possible Mansion House One-Way Street

No Action On Possible Mansion House One-Way Street

Buffalo's City Council took no action to make a one-way of East Holland Street, but tabled a decision to their next meeting to investigate the possibility further.

Mansion House Inn and Motel owner Pam McFadden approached the city council at their last meeting to ask that East Holland Street, which is the street between the inn and motel sections of her business, be designated as a one-way street running east from Main Street to the alley behind her property.
McFadden cited safety concerns from drivers using the street to exit Wahoo Likkers and Outback Lounge back onto Main Street.
She would like to see traffic diverted east from there onto North Lobban to decrease the safety risk of her guests at the inn.

The city council discussed the possibility of making the street a one-way, but said there have been some citizens voicing concerns with the possible change.

McFadden said her only concern in asking for the one-way was for safety of the guests.

The council asked McFadden to contact the two residents behind her property, explain her idea for the one-way and ask for their input in the matter.
Mayor Mike Johnson also asked City Attorney Ben Kirven to look into whether East Holland Street is an actual city-owned designated street or if it is a privately-owned access.

The council will re-address the issue at their next meeting and move forward based on the information compiled on the ownership of the street.
