This year is really moving along. Our beautiful neighborhood will be in full Autumn bloom soon. I just wanted to bring some important items to your attention.
– Project Newsletter from the city dated Sept 12, 2013-W. Moss Ave and Bradley Ave ADA Ramp improvement project 2013 regarding new crosswalks. MBRA has for the last two years been asking for “traffic calming” in our neighborhood. The city listened and is providing ADA compliant crosswalks, has added additional stop signs, painted parking lanes on Moss Ave and reduced speed limits to 25 mph on our busy neighborhood streets. Thanks to our last two MBRA boards of directors.
– Pending sale of Washington school on Moss Ave, by school board at auction to highest bidder.
– School board action regarding sale or repurpose of the Peoria Stadium.
We hope to bring a voice to these pending decisions involving our neighborhoods. Your opinions are welcome.
This month’s membership meeting will feature the interim Director of Wellness at BU who will present the changes and direction the university has taken to address substance abuse on campus. Also, we will hear a report on the RNNC recently completed this past weekend.
One last thing… if you have not had a chance to visit the recently remodeled Pere Marquette, it would be time well spent. Our city can be proud of the new “Pere”.
