August 15th: Inner Division Open House

From Seth Gallant, the Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association Transportation Chair:

There’s an open house coming up for the Powell-Division Bus Rapid Transit project on Monday, August 15th.

This is the project that was going to put a Bus Rapid Transit line on Powell, along the northern border of Foster-Powell, until it was discovered that they wouldn’t have adequate travel time savings on that route. It is now proposed to stay on Division exclusively. While this realignment makes it less useful for folks traveling to or from our neighborhood, neighborhood residents still have an interest in making sure the project can serve Foster-Powell residents. This means giving them input on station locations (such as making sure they’re in locations that are walkable to from Foster-Powell) and connected with improved pedestrian crossings of Powell.

If you’re interested, this would be a good opportunity to weigh in on these issues.
