Rockland Public Restroom nearly ready
Rockland — The Rockland Public Restroom on Tillson Avenue next to the Thorndike Building should be ready to open by June 1, project supervisor John Dutcher said May 20.
The 600-square-foot building, financed by the city from $150,000 in Tax Increment Financing (TIF) revenue, will offer three toilets in the women's restroom, and two toilets plus a urinal in the men's restroom. There will be baby-changing stations in each. Free municipal parking will be offered in a lot directly across the street.
Terry Pinto, director of the city's Pollution Control Facility with offices nearby, noted that, "Most stores downtown don't have public bathrooms." The Rockland Public Restroom is sure to be used by visitors and residents.
