The appeal of the decision to make Derby St a 1 way won last night in a 4-2 vote. Derby won’t be a 1 way anytime soon you guys. Good arguments were made for and against changing the street to a 1 way and ultimately the committee felt they would be rushing in without fully understanding how it would effect traffic elsewhere in the neighborhood.
The appeal for the Derby St petition will be tomorrow at 7pm at City Hall. In case you are new to the neighborhood, or earth, we are trying to get Derby St to become a 1 way so it’s safer for kids & families walking to/from Franklin.
There is opposition to making Derby a 1 way so its imperative you show up tomorrow night to support this petition. If you show up, the council should vote in our favor. If you don’t, we’ll lose.
I realize it’s a Wednesday and everyone has shit to do. No one wants to spend the evening at City Hall talking about traffic. But this is important. Please make time to be there.
