Thanks to the diligence of our residents, the small piece of 13th St. from Johnson to Kirkwood may finally be made more safe by the addition of sidewalks and new stop signs through the Neighborhood Conservation (NC) Program. The proposed plan is here: Z098- Concept Plan-2015-03-26.pdf. If the plan passes the NC funding meeting on June 11 and receives County Board approval in August, we should see the new sidewalks sometime in 2017.
