A once great Avenue…

… will be great again if the voters approve the money for Summit Avenue corridor improvements.  But first the issue has to actually get placed on the ballot.  As Wharton’s video clearly explains, some dedicated people have been working on this project for many years.

The Aycock Neighborhood is mobilizing residents to attend every one of the Transportation Department’s city-wide sessions to ascertain what projects are worthy of making the cut for this November’s balloting.  It is the last mile of a long journey, but it is the most important on of them all.

    You guys pay extra taxes for that stuff already? Your neighborhood (and my first two married life residences) has come a long, long way in the past 10 years. Dont we think some other neighborhoods could use some help now?

    Mick–Certainly a lot of places can use help, and if you look at the Bond items you will see that a lot of them are on the list. What is different about the Summit plan is that it has been approved by council, discussed and planned for 5 years, and just now has come to this point where we can vote on it. I think that anyone involved will be happy to tell you about the process and advise your neighborhood on how to get the process started.

    I see more clearly now. More info is a good thing.

    I moved out to the boring burbs. All houses the same. Getting sucked into City in a few months though. We dont really have any “needs”. I would like us all to be more discerning about needs vs wants. It can be a fine line.
