A street party is tentatively planned for Burnside and SE 16th on Friday, June 1st, during the morning and afternoon commute times. The purpose is to highlight the need for a safe crossing at this location for pedestrians & cyclists, including residents and students of Buckman Elementary, Central Catholic High School, Da Vinci Middle School, & Benson Polytechnic High School. Crossing enhancements are planned by the city in the next two years, but highlighting the need can help ensure there is follow through on the plan.
