      Design Benefits:
      Provide additional on-street parking
      Maximize commercial viability
      Maintain existing street pattern along length of Flat Schoals Ave.
      Provides flexibility for existing properties in median (either with rehabilitated structures or green space)
      Design Issues:
      Lowered accessibility to site
      Concern over one-way drive speed mitigation
      Requires traffic circle to maintain access to site

      Design Benefits:
      Conform to Reynoldstown Master Plan at the intersection of Flat Schoals Ave and Memorial Drive
      Potential for additional land area and value
      Design Issues:
      Potentially expensive, and time-consuming, property acquisition from the city
      Resubdivision required before any improvements to existing site
      Eliminates on-street parking and minimizes commercial viability
      Inconsistent with historic subdivision of public space
