Advocacy in Action — Where Next?

16 Nov

Our first Advocacy in Action focused on 52nd and NW Radial Hwy — a dangerous, but fixable, intersection that connects schools, parks, residences and business in the Benson area. See our summary video below.

We want to know where to focus our attention next. We have created a nominating form where citizens can nominate an intersection to be evaluated.

In our continued initiative to support Mayor Stothert’s Vision Zero initiative and engage the public, we will continue to highlight areas where a Vision Zero approach would improve the safety of everyone using the intersection. Please let us know where you think we should focus.
