Rescheduled Elmwood Repaving Meeting
From the folks over at Community Works Rhode Island:
When: Wednesday, *April 28th*, 2010 6:00-7:30 pm
Where: Knight Memorial Library Auditorium (downstairs), 275 Elmwood Ave.
As many of you know, Community Works Rhode Island, our elected officials and other community partners have been working with RIDOT to make sure that the changes coming to Elmwood Ave. reflect the needs expressed by neighborhood residents and others. Through meeting with neighbors, we know that those needs are:
- Pedestrian, bike and car safety
- An improved environment for all using the street
- Better access to Roger Williams Park
- Returning Elmwood Ave to a beautiful neighborhood avenue rather than a car-dominated “combat zone”
We have been working with L+A Landscape Architects to produce designs reflecting what the community wants Elmwood Avenue to become. These designs will be presented to RIDOT in the next few weeks. We have presented the designs to a number of you already, but want to get more community input before creating final recommendations to deliver to RIDOT. Please come give your comments on the proposed changes and add your perspective on what needs to happen to make Elmwood Avenue the street it could be!
If you live or ride through this area, please plan to attend the meeting and provide support and feedback about how Elmwood can become a better place to ride.
