Earlier this month, they talked about buses and cars in the neighborhood.
|Anatomy of streets - Buses and Cars Presentation|
The presentation moved nicely in the direction of plain language - "buses and cars" - and offered a small primer on some of the jargon and essential concepts the City uses in transportation planning.
So in addition to being useful for the neighborhood iteself, it has some value as a general resource. So check it out!
In the meeting notes, the number one value was about D Street:
D Street NE is well-used by walkers and bicyclists. It is a nice street that should not be widened. It should be made more accessible by walkers and bicyclists.If the neighborhood could be convinced, D Street could have some gentle "missing middle" townhouses or small-plexes added to make a splendid urban neighborhood street that focuses on walking and biking - and with additional numbers of people, bus service on D Street would be easier to restore! It would also be a great east-west corridor prioritized for biking and walking over auto through-put.
|From the flier|
It's nice that motorized vehicular traffic was broken out from active mobility and that transit was given particular attention.
The meeting will be 6:30 p.m. Tuesday the 8th at Salem First Church of the Nazarene, which is located at 1550 Market Street NE.
