Planning director Chris Chittum explains traffic flow improvement.
This evening from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Roanoke City planners held a drop in meet and greet to hear from concerned businesses on changing one-way streets to two-way streets. Planning director, Chris Chittum said that comments were mixed.
“If it ain’t broke why fix it” said some. Others just questioned parking and access that business customers are now accustomed to. Changes they fear will deter customers without easy parking and access.
That was the same fear when Campbell Avenue was made a two-way street many years ago. That fear of that change subsided quickly.

Today, OfficeMax announced plans to join with Office Depot to create a stronger, combined global company with a wide array of services and solutions that enable you, our valued MaxPerks customer, to work more efficiently and productively.
The combined company will build on the best of both organizations to give you even more product choices, advanced technology and printing services, and new innovations to help you work better in business and at home every day. By integrating our network of retail stores, direct sales, telesales and online environments, we’ll provide you multiple ways to connect with us.
Over the last six months, OfficeMax has added new technology support, cloud and website services. Recognizing the impact of economic and tax changes to the bottom line, we want to help make every dollar you spend work even harder by providing more everyday MaxPerks and weekly promotion value. We’ve expanded private brand products that offer strong performance at great value. Our commitment is to continue building this value as we serve you.
We expect the merger transaction to close by the end of calendar year 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. Until then, OfficeMax and Office Depot will remain separate companies, and each company will maintain its current rewards program.
