What's Next?? User input is guiding the recommendations of this study. After receiving input from the community and taking into account existing conditions, we’ll refine and prioritize the alternatives and options we’ve presented, and come up with recommendations for potential traffic calming measures. The entire study should be complete in the summer of 2018.
