Monday Street Closure and Party

APRIL 12, 2015 | WEBSITE SUBMITTED

Arboretum Neighbors for Safe Streets have a SDOT permit to close the block to cars and they are throwing a party!

The volume and speed of cars driving through the neighborhood to avoid busy arterials is a problem. 26th is not an arterial. Our goal for this event is to increase awareness among commuters of the safety concerns along our residential streets. And to have a good time with our neighbors! 

Join us on the closed street for children’s play-time, potluck snacks, and to thank commuters at the barriers for using the arterial! Bring the kids! Bikes, balloons, games and a Scrabble tournament. 

After the Street Social we’re invited to join the other party 6:15 PM at 1210 26th Ave East to discuss how we can create a safer walking, biking and living community in our Arboretum Neighborhood.
