"Remove (at least) one lane to widen sidewalks, add parking and plant trees. (How many lanes would need to be removed so the sidewalks occupy half the total road allowance?)

Remove another lane for a physically separated bus/cycle lane.

Ensure every intersection has a pedestrian crosswalk.

I agree that if we did this, Main would be attractive and safe for pedestrians (and still one-way)"

This would be acceptable to most motorists. To say it wouldn't is pure conjecture and defeatist. Nobody has every asked. Whats the harm in floating this idea? Are you afraid it might be accepted? Show a compromise that doesn't cripple movement but rather slows it and you have a chance
