Many times I have thought about writing to the Public Forum. "City Council: Sugar House Streetcar will run on 1100 East" (Tribune, May 8) finally pushed me to write.

I live in Midvale and commute to the Avenues. After a particularly difficult day at work, I find myself heading toward 1100 East on my drive home. It is out of my way, and not the quickest route, but it is a peaceful drive.

I love the atmosphere of 1100 East in Sugar House. There are so many cute, interesting little shops whose owners have obviously put their heart and soul into.

The construction around 2100 South is bad enough to maneuver through, but putting a streetcar down narrow 1100 East will surely devastate the shops and change the atmosphere of this lovely stretch of road.
