Though of course the underlying autoism remains problematic, it is nice to see more visibility to traffic calming, and perhaps even something of a campaign. Is it a spontaneous thing or is there a group behind them?

But you know what we haven't seen? I don't believe there has been any public formal assessment of the signs presented to Council. Has the City conducted speed studies since the signs were installed? What difference have they made?
If it is significant, why aren't we in a rush to install more? If they do not make a meaningful difference, what then is the next step for the streets deemed problematic enough for the initial installation?

Dying Trees at the Hospital?
Also back in 2015, criticism and an appeal to LUBA prompted the Hospital to revise the parking plan for the Blind School project and to save an additional cluster of older Oak trees.
