For Today

Central Area Neighborhood Greenway Drop-In Session

Since 23rd Avenue is a heavily used route in the Central District, it is not always the safest or most comfortable street for pedestrians and cyclists. The Central Area Neighborhood Greenway plan that is being implemented for the area is still deciding between the 24th and 25th Avenue routes. The preferred options for phase two of the project will be presented in this meeting. PubliCola's Josh Feit breaks down the greenway project—sans bike lane. 

Central Area Neighborhood Greenway Drop-In Session, Tue, Aug 26, 4:30–6:30pm, Garfield Community Center, 2323 E Cherry St, free


For Wednesday
