What downtown really needs are public restrooms. It is embarrassing to ask a store clerk for a restroom key in front of other customers, or to beg a reluctant clerk for permission to use a dingy restroom intended only for employees, or to walk into an eating establishment to use their restroom when I’m not there to purchase food. I don’t shop with young children in tow–I can only imagine what a problem this is for those parents. Sometimes I have cut my shopping short because of the lack of public restrooms. The city could purchase an empty storefront for this purpose.
