from Katya Pilling at Seward Redesign
Hi there – A quick update on the planning for Riverside Avenue.
We have posted the presentation documents from the community meeting July 12th at ADC on our facebook page:
The City’s web site:
I have requested that the revised plans be posted prior to the meeting, but they are not available as of today.
I have also attached a poster of some recommended tools and techniques for bike treatments, shared by Transit for Livable Communities.
There is another round of public meetings coming very soon:
Tuesday, August 24th
Seward Towers East Advantage Center (2910 E Franklin Ave) at 6:30pm.
Augsburg College Oren Gateway Center in room 111 (2211 Riverside Avenue) at 10:00am.
My understanding from Joe Bernard, at City CPED, is that these plans will be near final for comment. They expect to go to the City Council in September and October. There will be public hearings as part of the City Council process, but that these Aug 24th meetings are likely the last of the meetings out in the community and the last time for significant public impact/input to the process.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Please also help as you can to get the word out to your constituents, friends, and neighbors. Again, this is a very significant project in terms of the resources that will be invested and the long-term impact it will have on our communities, transportation in the metro, and the City as a whole.
