With David Mann’s Help… Rush Hour Parking Restrictions On The Corner of Hermosa and West Eighth Are Being Eliminated, Making Price Hill More Attractive To Families, Seniors, and Those With Disabilities
In response to the motion of Councilmembers Sundermann and Mann, the rush hour parking restrictions on West Eighth are being eliminated. The result will be one lane of traffic in each direction rather than two. This change will create a much safer neighborhood for motorists and pedestrians, especially children. At a time when Price Hill, like many neighborhoods, wants to be attractive to families with children, seniors and those with disabilities, the current unsafe traffic conditions work against community efforts to keep and attract new residents. Enacting these easy changes along W. 8th Street in Price Hill will contribute greatly to the safety of all Price Hill residents.
Quotes From Councilmembers and Civic Leaders
“In neighborhood after neighborhood we are learning that motorists driving through a community rather than within a community have a tendency to drive too fast and/or be distracted. This trip to get through a neighborhood becomes faster and less safe when an extra open lane becomes available to folks moving to and from suburbs. Pedestrian safety, particularly for children, is too important to suffer at the altar of fast commutes.”
– Councilmember David Mann
“As residents of Price Hill, we have seen an increase in pedestrian fatalities due to speeding cars, especially around schools. Increasing parking areas will calm the streets and protect adults and Children”
– Councilmember Betsy Sundermann
“One of the keys to Price Hill thriving in the future is a commitment to safe streets for residents. One simple method is street calming, especially on residential streets. Our residents should feel safe walking, jogging, cycling or just being out enjoying the neighborhood. The residual boost to quality of life helps property values and creates viable, clean, safe stable neighborhoods in the future. I wholeheartedly support this initiative by Councilmember Mann and Councilmember Sundermann. It give our community back the safe West 8th street we deserve.”
– Pete Witte, Price Hill Leader
