have been among the most often asked about and requested improvements in Bridlemile. The major impediment has always been funding. If you're looking for the SW Hamilton Halo LID pilot project page, this is it! And its also about pedestrian improvements that meet ADA standards, and bicycle improvements too.
Transportation & Pedestrian Safety
Pedestrian safety is one of the main priorities of projects past and present.
Swales to trails, side walks, speed bumps and limits, safe routes to school for walking and biking, crosswalks, street Collector Plan, pedestrian safety, bicycling, bus service, traffic lights, stop signs... there's alot essential Transportation elements in Bridlemile that could greatly benefit from some futher improvements.
If you are interested in improving any of Bridlemile's many transportation needs please volunteer to help with projects of interest to you.
Bev Vogt who has done great things for Bridlemile transportation over the years resigned as Committee Chair at the end of 2006, and acting Chair June 2008.. And we are desperately in need of a volunteer to take over that position. Resposiblities of the Transportation Chair include attending Bridlemile NA meetings (2nd Wed of each month), SWNI Transportation Meetings(3rd Wednesday of each month), keeping these Bridlemile Transportation web pages up to date (help and training available from our web Chair), and coordinating other BNA Transportation Committee volunteers. Bev recommends that the new Chair "have more energy and strength, and be more adept and interested in doing all the politics that this position requires. This position requires someone who really burns with interest in and enthusiasm about dealing with all the inner workings of City, Metro, and State transportation politics. It is really an important position to have for the neighborhood association".
