Central Avenue Safe Concept Plan Approved!


The City Council signed off on a safer Central Avenue on Monday night, unanimously okaying a conceptual plan to put bike lanes, a bikeway serving two schools, more and more visible crosswalks and a host of other improvements along the cross-Island arterial.

Given that it was unclear just six months ago whether this plan was even going to go forward, it probably goes without saying that your postcards, letters and heartfelt comments to policymakers at three packed public meetings made them realize that the community wants this and that they should move it forward.

Congratulations on using YOUR voices to score a big win for safety in this community!
