Traffic Calming Orientation For City Neighborhoods

Speaking of ways to make the roads safer for those walking, riding their bikes or using other nonmotorized transportation (see previous thread), a Traffic Calming Orientation presentation will be given on December 8th, at 5:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall.

This orientation will address the 2011/2012 Traffic Calming Program and how City neighborhoods can apply to receive funding for traffic calming projects.

Participation in the orientation is a mandatory step in the application process. Unfortunately, that's all I know about this workshop at this time, so if you have questions, I've been told to refer you to the Department of Neighborhood Services at 509-625-6730 or email them here.
