At our January Land Use meeting, discussion continued regarding the pinch point on SE Woodward between 60th and 62nd. We are working on a temporary solution to help improve safety in our neighborhood.

Woodward is a Greenway that gives priority to bicyclists and pedestrians but through car traffic adds to the dangers on the street especially where there are no sidewalks. In these corridors pedestrians are often pushed into the road adding to the possibility of accidents. The section of road under discussion has no sidewalks and the width of the street narrows to as little as 15 feet. Please consider options other than driving down the Woodward Greenway when possible.

At January’s general meeting we started making plans to hold a community pancake breakfast fundraiser, date still to be determined. If you are interested in helping out with the breakfast, contact us at info@southtabor.org or join us for our next general meeting. All meetings are open to neighbors. Board positions currently open are secretary and vice president.

If you want to find out more about these positions contact president@southtabor.org. We are excited for folks to join us and add their voices to the conversation.

Land Use meeting Tuesday, February 19; General meeting Thursday, February 21, all meetings run from 7 pm-8:30 pm and are held at Trinity Fellowship, 2700 SE 67th Ave, entry on the east from the parking lot. See southtabor.org for more information.
