Update from Irene Jackson, President NBHOL 8/24/16:
Good evening! Â Â Â
Â Â This evening, Alderman Silverstein held the meeting regarding the expected changes to the Howard/Sacramento intersection. Representatives from both Chicago and Evanston were there to explain their plans; which includes a pedestrian sidewalk bump out in addition to the traffic signal.Â Â Approximately 60 residentsÂ attended.Â Sid, Morrine, and I were in attendance.
Â Â Â Most of the residents in attendance were supportive of the traffic light and bump out; however, they opposed the idea of changing Sacramento into a two-way street due to concerns about traffic entering North Boundary.Â Those present vote,d with a show of hands, to keep Sacramento a one way street.
