The residents of the West Ave neighborhood have an opportunity to offer input on the streetscape design.
It is not possible to accommodate everyone’s wish list, the right-of-way (ROW) is a finite width, generally 70 feet. There has to be a compromise regarding the components that make up the streetscape – location of trees, driving lane width, sidewalk width, bike lane, street parking, turn lanes.
The city designed 4 options. Note, a hybrid from these options is also possible.
Wavna members rate priorities as follows: pedestrian safety, protected bike lanes, traffic safety, and shade trees. With that in mind, the Wavna Streetscape Committee originally recommended one of these designs, shown below.
