I would like to see more holiday lights around the Amtrak area in downtown.
The bump needs cut down on Pryor Road heading south bound, in the east(left) lane just over the over pass and approaching Longview road 4 way. Probably Ok for 20-25 mph but not for 35 mph.
The M-150 Corridor Overlay is the result of nearly a decade worth of discussion. The city council has stated their agreement with the concept, and citizens have bought in. We need to allow this ordinance to be enacted prior to any major development in the area. We all agree about what we want the future of that area to be. Let's stick to our stated goals and vision!
As a school bus driver I have discovered what I consider to be a very hazardous situation for residents and professionals trying to exit to north side of the Woodland Shores sub-division. I understand that Legacy Park and the surrounding areas are trying to keep the natural beauty of the land incorporated in the landscaping. It is a gorgeous area to drive through every day, in fact probably one of the favorite parts of my day. The problem lies in trying to make a left turn heading north on Blackwell out of Woodland Shore Dr. on the north side. The landscaping in the median includes some rather large cedar trees that block the view of oncoming northbound traffic. It is always a guessing game even in a large vehicle, I can't imagine what it must be like in a car. The natural prairie grasses are sometimes hinderance enough when they grow tall in the summer but the trees added to that have really become a nuisance for drivers that spend their day always thinking about safety. Perhaps this can be remedy with another equally beautiful but still natural looking landscaping choice. I too am bored with green lawns grasses and maple trees but perhaps there are shorter choices than the very full cedars currently in place. Thanks for your time.
I am interested in the expansion of Pryor Road between Scheerer and MO-150. My main priority would be the addition of sidewalks on Pryor. My kids attend Hawthorne Hill Elemementary and there are no sidewalks for us to walk to the school from our neighborhood, Eagle Creek. We live less than a mile from the school and feel this is necessary. There are many sidewalks north of Scheerer, from Longview north or to the west of us on Ward and it would be nice to have some on Pryor as well. There is a large number of runners in our neighborhood also that would use the sidewalks if we had them.
Downtown Days, Oktoberfest, Friday Night Concerts, etc. are a great way to create a small town feel in a big city. Keep up the good work!
