    THIS RULE PUT 65% NEWSSTAND OUT OF BUSINESS,BECAUSE THERE IS NO OTHER PLACE TO PUT NEWSSTAND AND BUSINESS CANNOT SURVIVE. ME AND WIFE HAVE BEEN DOING THIS BUSINESS FOR 35 YEARS. SOME YEARS AGO CUMUSA COMPANY MAKE A NEWSSTAND ACCORDING TO THE DOT GUIDELINE. After the guidelines DOT put what objects like fire hydrant, tree, bus stop etc.. which caused buisness to suffer. Building people put benches and other stuff. That why we cannot comply in this new guideline. Thats why we are going out of business. Please don’t impose the new guideline.

    The comments offered on the virtual meeting today by Mr.Max Bookman, summarize my and many many other owners of newsstand. We encourage DCWP to consider point by point, his full written testimony and provide a public reply to each.
    Thank you.
