  3. When will Harrison street between W Simpson and W Geneseo get paved?

    This part of street is dirt and usually a mud puddle. There is an increased amount of traffic due to Black Diamond. Paving street would certainly help keep cars from sliding up to and into our...

  4. What else will happen on 111th

    It looks like you will be widening 111th near the police station. Are you also planning on widening the road north past Beacon Hill prior to the county? Second, all of the older homes on 111th have...

    What exactly are they doing on E Emma St? Are they cleaning out the natural gas pipelines - putting in new ones? Are they replacing laterals? They've been at it for a while - do you know how much...

  9. Traffic Light Request

    How can we request a stoplight at 111th and Lucerne? Traffic has increased alot on 111th making it a dangerous intersection.

  10. I was wondering why the intersection of Saratoga and Avalon is at such a strange angle and so narrow?fromInitiativeID=13

    The intersection is very narrow and is not even at a 90 degree angle. We know there must be a good reason for this, but can't figure out what that reason would be!
