An open letter to the Mayor and Columbia City Council
A plea for attention to special needs on Oak Street, which connects Campbellsville Street and Sandusky Street to Wain Street and Fairground Street, in a growing fast-changing part of Columbia

By Ralph Roy Waggener, Personal Commentary
Editor, Just for A Smile
Oak Street is a narrow path made into a street from the old Sandusky Mill property.
Oak Street has places on it that two cars can't pass when meeting each other.
Oak Street is not in the most prosperous part of Columbia, but it is growing, combined with Wain and Sandusky Streets.
Would it be possible to look at some of these narrow places and maybe make them wider?
Several light poles are right next to the pavement, and on Sandusky a fire plug is very close to pavement and the pavement is not as wide as most city streets.
Trifecta Print and Design has its main loading dock on Oak Street and its offices are located around the corner on Wain Street.
I travel Oak Street a lot; and not only is it narrow, it is in need to some attention on its surface.
It would be most appreciated if some attention could be made to correct some of the problems here.
The old Sandusky Mill office building has been torn down and a service pole to it still stands almost in the road. A cement curb put there years ago to keep cars from hitting the building could now be removed for more space in the Oak Street curve leading to its intersection with Sandusky Street.
I notice these problems more than most of you do because I use Oak a lot.
Thank you Mayor and city council for listening to my request. - Ralph Roy Waggener
