Rally for pedestrian signals on Fessenden / St Louis
October 20, 2017 at 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
In 2013, after 17 months of negotiation with the community, PBOT agreed to install pedestrian beacons at key places along the corridor [see flyer]. In June, they unilaterally decided to not do so. Because of community pressure we’ve now received committment to include them – but quite possibly not next year, as originally planned and when other changes will be done.
It is more than possible that if they go ahead with the other changes PBOT will then turn around and say we have enough and that they won’t spend anything more. THEREFORE IT IS CRUCIAL WE GET A WRITTEN COMMITTMENT FROM PBOT TO INSTALL THESE SIGNALS IN 2018 along with everything else.
The only thing that will make this happen is community pressure. Please come – and bring the kids! – on Oct 20. We’ll have the press and possibly some important speakers.
