Pettaway Neighborhood Association is holding its monthly neighborhood meeting 6pm tonight at the East 21st Street Alert Center (aka East Broadway Alert Center). Meeting generally lasts for an hour and provides a wonderful opportunity to meet and fellowship with your neighbors, find out what’s happening in the neighborhood and take part in the betterment of our community. Come.
The Pettaway Neighborhood Association meets the third Thursday of every month.
The Traffic Calming Project on South Main Street will be up for Vote tomorrow evening (Tuesday) at 6pm at City Hall.
I am urging all folks to show up in support of this project as it has long term affects for the health of our neighborhoods all over our great City. Here are some facts, please spread the word:
* South Main project will be 90% funded by Ark State Highway
* South Main project will allow for alternative forms of transportation (bike lanes)
* Traffic Counts on South Main Street are very low, under 5000 cars per day, so traffic shouldn’t be impeded. (18,000 cars per day and lower are recommended for such projects)
* Similar Road Diet on 12th Street caused traffic to slow from 42 miles per hour to posted speed limit of 35 miles per hour
* Slower traffic has had a positive impact, nationwide, on creating economic progress along similar corridors
Hope to see you there.
