A safer, slower American Legion

Let’s improve safety on American Legion between Blue Hill Avenue and Cummins Highway.

American Legion should be more comfortable for walking, waiting for the bus, crossing the street, and riding bikes with your family. We can make design changes in the coming year to improve safety for everyone.

We would like to know what we should be focusing on for the next phase of this project:


September 2020 Outreach

We're grateful to all the community members who have shared their stories and concerns. We appreciated talking with you about potential design changes that will help slow drivers and improve safety.


We offered two opportunities for a virtual presentation and short discussion. We will offered the same presentation in each meeting. Meetings were available in English and in Spanish. You can view the recording of these meetings:


Neighbors stopped by to chat with a member of our team in-person. We were outside:

  • Tuesday, September 22, 7 - 9 a.m. at the intersection of Stella Road and American Legion
  • Thursday, September 24, 4:30 - 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Shandon Road and Fermoy Heights Avenue
  • Saturday, September 26, noon - 3 p.m. at the Franklin Park Playground at American Legion
  • Tuesday, September 29, 4 - 7 p.m. at the intersection of Stella Road and American Legion

For the safety of you, your neighbors, and City staff, we followed state and City guidelines for meetings. All attendees were required to wear a face covering and stay six feet away from others.
