Over at SBBA they posted a nice note about improved signage for the crosswalk on Market Street at Winter, right at Grant Elementary School.
It remains disappointing, though, that the City has no definite plan yet to continue the improvements into downtown on the segment south of D Street, and there is not even a conceptual plan for a second Greenway/Bike Boulevard in Salem.
Our commitments remain on the fringes of things, and if we are ever going to get serious about a Climate Plan, we will need to stop with fiddling on the margins and work on more fundamental changes to our transportation mix. We will need more than nice new signs.

Addendum, Friday evening
Wait! Here's some real transportation news. One of the new Cherriots Board members is a little younger and on twitter. He was elected Board Chair, and here he announces "free Saturdays in September" as part of celebrating the service expansion.
Also in the meeting packet for the Board meeting last night was discouraging evidence of climate denialism on the Board. Fortunately it was only one vote, and outgoing Director Lincoln made a strong statement for the climate.
|One No vote|

Addendum, September 4th
From the August 1st, Grant Neighborhood Association minutes. One of the signs in the crosswalk on Market at Winter has "already been hit, and spun out of alignment."
