Traffic and Traffic Safety Committee
Work to improve traffic safety in our neighborhood, including “Safe Paths to School” and improved public transportation or alternative transportation options.
Chair: TBD
Neighbors have met with city traffic officials to learn what we need to do to get some of our issues solved. There are a few hoops we need to jump through to get traffic studies done and (hopefully) get some traffic calming considered for the ‘hood. It’s doable, but it would be best to do it in a coordinated way. If you would like to lead these efforts, please contact us.
