The Office of Neighborhood Services is hosting three different traffic-calming workshops for anyone interested in learning how their grassroots traffic-calming proposals can turn into fully realized projects. To put it another way: If you really want a roundabout or a crosswalk somewhere, these workshops will let you know if it’s possible and, if so, how to go about making it happen.
The workshops will take place on Tuesday, January 26 at the Northeast Community Center (4001 N Cook), Wednesday, January 27 at the Southside Senior & Community Center (3151 E 27th) and on Wednesday, February 3 at the West Central Community Center (1603 N Belt). All of them will run from 5:30 to 7pm.
Although the workshops are provided to each of the three city districts, you don’t have to live in a particular district to attend a particular workshop.
