Tell the City of Elmira NO to a Roundabout on North Main Street!
The City of Elmira is in process of planning to construct a Roundabout directly south of our Business, Savino's Liquor & Wine. This Roundabout will directly affect our business in numerous ways! If completed, It will eliminate much of our already limited ON STREET parking directly in front of our store. We do not own the parking lot just North of us and there is no guarantee that this will be available for customer parking. (The city also has potential plans which may also jeopardize on street parking north of our store, leaving us with almost no parking at all) Even more so, we also feel it will create a confusing intersection, which people may avoid completely, therefore driving business elsewhere. There is also a proposed 6-10 month construction phase where our customers at times may not have easy access, or access at all to our store.
We have been in Business as a Liquor Store in Downtown Elmira for over 40 YEARS! This plan for a Roundabout greatly jeopardizes our future to run a successful business and grow.
Last time we checked, Elmira was trying to bring business Downtown and make it flourish again, not drive out the established businesses already here! Please SIGN our petition here OR in store to voice your opinion on this very important matter!
There wil be a public meeting in September where you can also share your input with the city! If you need more information please reach out to us directly and we will share any information we have with you!
