There are just two more participatory budgeting assemblies this year- and one is tonight (6pm, Stockton Elementary School, 4425 N Beacon). Come with your infrastructure ideas or stop complaining about how we don’t have a bricolage mural at the Lawrence Avenue underpass. Here’s the agenda: NA Agenda 2012-2013 (PDF Download).
These visuals can give you a brainstorming nudge:
A promenade along Broadway?
Making the TCF Bank Parking Lot, or the Jewel parking lot, more of a public place and less of an eyesore?
Taking an under-used space or lot and building it into a place with trees and pathways (click to enlarge).
Installing separated bike lanes on busy streets? Sheridan, Broadway, Lawrence, Clarendon could work.
A two-way brick lane would be even more beautiful, and the first in Chicago.
More brick charm. This would be grand on some of our more beautiful residential streets.
This treatment makes it easier to cross the street. We’d love to see this as part of the Leland Bikeway.
Where could we use more bike parking? Bike parking racks are relatively inexpensive.
How about on the street?
Let’s do this. The last two events are:
Tonight: Wednesday, October 24 @6pm (Stockton Elementary School: 4425 N Beacon)
Next week: Tuesday, October 30 @ 7pm (Peoples Church: 941 W. Lawrence)
