           128 Blackburn Avenue

Hello, and first off, thank you for your time and service to our
community. It is very much appreciated.

My wife and I are the parents of two young boys, ages 2 and 4 in the coming
month, and we live at 128 Blackburn Avenue, directly across from the
Baywood/Blackburn intersection. We'd like to request your help in
addressing what we consider a serious safety issue: Willows cut-through
traffic, which continues to worsen in 2017.

Willows Safe Streets is about increasing the safety of our streets by
reducing the volume and speed of cut-through traffic in the Willows.
Beyond the sheer number of cars cutting through our neighborhood, the speed
and negligent manner in which they do so concerns us immensely (e.g. barely
slowing at the intersection of Baywood/Blackburn, often times at a high
rate of speed). Even while we watch our boys as they play in the front
yard or ride their scooters on the sidewalk, we don't quite feel our
children are safe, and we don't feel the cut-through problem is being
addressed adequately.

As such, we request that the reduction of Willows cut-through traffic be a
city transportation goal in 2017, and for resources to be specifically
included in the city's 2017 work plan.

As a neighborhood we will work collaboratively with the City to support
this work. My neighbors and I are intent on affecting meaningful change.


JD and Monica Kuchinski.
