Merrimon Widening Comment

Joe: Making it unsafe for bicycles and pedestrians so cars can go even faster is not a plan we can support

Dear Mr. Clark,

I am writing in regards to the Merrimon Ave. street-widening plan. My wife and I live adjacent to Merrimon Avenue near the project area. Please create a plan that is pedestrian and bike friendly.

Merrimon Avenue is unsafe and we know something needs to be done. Making it unsafe for bicycles and pedestrians so cars can go even faster is not a plan we can support. In fact, we would appreciate a reduction in the speed limit on Merrimon Avenue!

Please consider the wishes of those that live in the area affected by the planned widening of Merrimon Avenue and make it pedestrian and bicycle safe.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Joe Ebel
