Should the downtown be repaved?

In all of the discussions of the downtown "revitalization" and the repaving with bricks, NEVER was it discussed the NOISE that these bricks cause from autos. It was suggested that it was the problem of maintenance that caused the pave over---but as a test for citizens, I suggest that you go downtown and sit in one of the wonderful green chairs and listen to the traffic.

Now imagine that you live in an upstairs apartment over one of the shops. Now imagine getting some sleep.

The viability of apartment rental downtown is important because a multiple of that income is how the properties are valued, and getting the proper increment is going to be difficult anyway, without the unforseen noise factor.

I suggest that the reason our historic forefathers paved the street, was that it was too noisy.
