Bathrooms are important?

"Public amenities are extremely important to the customer," said Bardavon executive director Chris Silva, who runs the Ulster Performing Arts Center on Broadway in Kingston.

You would think that would go without saying. But that is actually one of the reasons UPAC will close for the summer, as reported by Paul Kirby in today's Freeman.

Here's an interesting line from that story:

"The rest room plans first must meet the approval of the city Planning Board."

Since Silva has to ask for permission to have a bathroom, one wonders if there is an anti-bathroom lobby out there or if you have to ask for permission to use it.

Remeber, this is Kingston, land of the boots. So who knows?

I know. the plan is an expansion, so the Planning Board has to be involved (to plan, see?)
The board is set to discuss the proposal at 6 p.m. Feb. 11 at City Hall.
