Progress on The Avenue, New Business In District 2 - Questions and Solutions
By Richard C. Clement
With the addition of the Bucharest Grill on the Livernois Avenue of Fashion, parking has become an extreme priority. To solve that problem a building or two can be removed, including the median in the middle of the road. What are your thoughts on a pilot project to allow for parking in the middle of Livernois with a bike lane protected with a smaller median?
The next issue is traffic enforcement to control the speeding and parking violations. What are your thoughts on installing traffic strips connected to a camera to control the excessive speeding?
The camera would photograph licenses plates of offending vehicles for processing by the law. The tactical use of technology would accomplish the goals of controlling excessive speeding, increase parking spaces, and generate foot traffic while revitalizing empty buildings at the same time.
If you are interested in doing something like this for the Livernois Avenue Of Fashion, please contact Council President Brenda Jones At Large, City Councilmember Janee Ayers At Large, and Council President Pro Tem George Cushingberry Jr District 2. The first three votes are very crucial to the cause of improving the quality of life of the neighborhoods.
With two or more additional Councilmembers supporting this effort, this project would be given a chance to address the needs of the business owners and the surrounding community.
Please contact a Detroit City Councilmember at www.detroitmi.gov/Government/City-Council by voice, email, and In-Person on this important matter.
