A Participatory Budgeting postcard for you: the Streets and Cycling committee met this week to whittle down the list of projects from community brainstorms and identify winners that deserve more research. The theme of traffic calming keeps coming up. Check out the dominant project categories:
- Making the intersection of Broadway, Montrose and Sheridan easier to navigate;
- Traffic calming Leland and Clarendon;
- Accommodating cyclists with protected lanes and places to park.
And of course there are routine considerations such as curbs, sidewalks and gutters that warrant repair. The Streets and Cycling teams are making site visits in the next few weeks and will be prioritizing the projects that have the greatest potential to improve safety and beauty in our neighborhood.
