In light of recent accidents and ongoing traffic issues along Columbia St, many of our readers, contacts, and friends in the community have expressed real concern about safety and noise issues.
As a result, we have decided to put together a petition. When complete, we will forward it to the DOT and other city agencies and officials.
There are several ways that you can sign this petition:
1) Come to the Halloween event at Mother Cabrini Park/the Urban Meadow this Saturday from 10-12am. We will have the petition available at one of our tables.
2) Stop by the Coffee Den anytime next week. They have agreed to have petition forms available.
3) If neither of these options work for you, please email us and we'll work something out.
Finally, if you have time and are passionate about this issue, we also invite you to collect signatures from your friends and neighbors. Please contact us if interested.
