Vandalism Challenges in Lancaster's Ewell Plaza

The executive director of the Lancaster Parking Authority, Larry Cohen, is considering limiting access to public restrooms in Ewell Plaza due to ongoing vandalism issues since the plaza's opening in October. Cohen expressed concerns about increased congregation in the plaza following the closure of Binns Park. Discussions with the city are ongoing regarding potential solutions, including adding cameras and altering restroom hours. Cohen suggested closing restrooms except during special events, but no decisions have been made. The issue extends beyond restrooms, involving the maintenance of the entire plaza, with updates expected at the next parking authority board meeting in June.
