This isn’t something which would directly impact our neighborhood, but I thought I would pass it along since it concerns one of the major trafficways in the city:
The City of Columbia recently held an informational meeting concerning traffic safety and capacity for improvements on Providence Road, between Turner Ave. and Stadium Blvd. The goals of this project are to: 1) Improve traffic flow on Providence; 2) Improve pedestrian crossing opportunities across Providence; 3) Improve access to adjacent neighborhoods; and 3) Reduce delay and traffic congestion.
At this time there are five design concepts for review. Each option has its pros and cons regarding signal locations as well as side roads accessing Providence. Please review each option and provide your feedback regarding the option you see as the best alternative for Columbia residents, businesses and visitors.
There’s more information and a way to provide comments at that link. You have until May 5th to let the city know your opinion in the matter.
Thought that I would pass along that there will be an estate auction this Wednesday, April 21, starting at 10:00 AM at the home of Ray Schroeder. The full information can be found on the auctioneer’s website, and in a display ad on the back page of Sunday’s Tribune Sports Section.
Hope to see you there!
Congratulations to Gary Kespohl on his election victory for representing the Third Ward. Good luck serving in the office!
Looking ahead, on Saturday, June 5 from 9-11 a.m. Randy Kilgore and Gary Smith will be happy to host an Open House at their home for our neighborhood. Details to follow.
If anyone else would like to volunteer to hold an Open House between now and then, please drop me a note.
And as noted previously, I am looking to step down from the role as President for the neighborhood association. If you think you would be interested in serving the neighborhood in this position, but have questions about what is involved, please feel free to contact me. Elections are usually held at the annual picnic/business meeting.
