Join Greenwood Community Council members to document walking along unsafe areas of Greenwood Avenue

June 17th, 2013 · Comments

Members of the Greenwood Community Council are asking neighbors to join them on a walk along Greenwood Avenue North, to explore the areas north of North 90th Street, at 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

The state of Greenwood Ave north of 90th is of great concern for many Greenwood residents. The lack of sidewalks, sufficient lighting and a busy arterial create an unsafe atmosphere for pedestrians. To shed light on this issue, the Greenwood Community Council (GCC) invites individuals to join us on a Greenwood Ave walk and adventure beyond where the sidewalk ends.

Purpose: To document the experience of walking Greenwood Ave north of 90th in the evening. Documentation of this experience will be used to generate awareness of the conditions pedestrians face on north Greenwood Ave.

Meet at Naked City Taphouse & Brewery at 8564 Greenwood Ave. N. at 8:30 p.m. Walkers will leave Naked City at 9 p.m., walk north to North 105th St., then return.

If you can’t make it to the walk, but want to send feedback about your own experiences walking along that stretch of road, email your comments to info@greenwoodcommunitycouncil.org.
