Parade hems in neighbors

Local neighborhood shut down by authorities without notice to hundreds of residents. I knew the well-planned and always beautiful Festival of Lights Parade would be tonight (Dec. 3) and I am sure it did not disappoint the crowds. What I did not know was the city and the chamber of commerce would be inconsiderate to the local residents in the surrounding neighborhood. People have lives and they have plans which may not include the local parade, and without being informed they would not be able to leave their neighborhood I am sure many of us were inconvenienced. So what I want for Christmas this year is a commitment from the chamber to make next year’s parade more successful, and also provide access for the local residents in the area. Wesley Swain, Auburn
