Another beautiful Walking Tour in Birney on 5/7

Jennifer Kammerzell and her fan club (the rest of us) walked the neighborhood taking notes of opportunities for improvements, and learning about Safe Routes to School upgrades coming next to Birney Elementary including sidewalks, bulb-outs, and traffic calming. We even managed to continue our streak of sunny Walking Tour weather!
🙂 Special thanks to Amber & her dad Bob for joining us 🙂
