Term Changes Detriment The bureau contended to members of council that the proposed improvements would be "a serious detriment rather than an asset" to the city, that the height of the proposed superstructure above the comfort station would obstruct the view of the display windows of stores. The bureau declared that plans for the new comfort station "have been prompted, no doubt, by a desire to add a valuable improvement to our downtown retail business section," that "we are confident you have not fully realized the serious effects of the contemplated project," and that "we take this means of presenting to you our point of view, which we trust will be received in the spirit in which it is given." The Merchants' Bureau asked city officials to abandon their plans, or any modification of them to serve "the best interest of all concerned."
