Descrizione

The street is currently being rebuilt between West Elm and Chapel.

This is an opportunity to get the street right, i.e., bring it into compliance with the city's Complete Streets Policy. As evidenced on numerous SeeClickFix tickets, the street is currently a liability to the neighborhood, rather than an asset. See examples at

Instead of having to tear up Central Avenue again in a few years, why can't the city build it correctly the first time around?

As Chris Heitmann has explained elsewhere, examples would include: Not striping the double yellow (which makes the street feel like a highway), installing bumpouts, painting chicanes (which alternates the parking), lowering the posted speeds, etc.

Repaving it exactly the way it was before is the definition of insanity. The same problems will keep coming up again and again.

There are neighbors willing to organize and approve a Complete Streets compliant design. Let's do it.
