Re: [willows_neighborhood] Willow-101 interchange concerns

All neighbors concerned about traffic in the Willows are encouraged to sign a petition that several of us will be walking around with this weekend. We will take the petition with us to the City Council meeting next week. Attend the meeting and voice your concerns!

Several of us will be at the Pope island tomorrow (Sat), 10am-12noon with the petition, available to answer questions and discuss potential solutions to the issues raised by many neighbors: the volume of cut-traffic and speeding through the Willows.
