Willow - Cut Through Traffic

From: Philip J. Reuther <"Philip>

Dear Members of the City Council,
 My family and I (wife Erin and children ages 5, 3, and 3 months) have lived in the Willows since 2009.  Since that time, we have seen cut through traffic in the Willows increase expenentially and are asking for your help.  
Please act on Willows cut-through traffic in 2017. It’s a safety issue.
 Willows Safe Streets is about increasing the safety of our streets by reducing the volume, and the speed, of cut-through traffic in the Willows While all of the Willow cut-through traffic is troublesome, the backup on Chester from Willow south past Laurel is particularly troublesome most evenings, often adding 5 to 10 minutes for us to get home.  Futhermore, I have frequently witnessed speeding cars on Laurel and Central passing other cars for traveling the speed limit, which is obviously very dangerous. We need the reduction of Willows cut through traffic to 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.  We know things can be different. My neighbors and I are intent on affecting meaningful change.
