We Heart Hosmer! (Part 1)

It was another lovely morning for our 6/11 Walking Tour along Hosmer from 84th to 96th!

Special thanks to Carrie Wilhelme from the City’s Planning Department, NW Community Outreach Manager Levon Williams with the Trust for Public Land, Richard Gardner from the City’s Transportation Commission, & our very own District 5 City Council Member Joe Bushnell for joining us!

Along the route we picked up litter & noted three vacant motel properties (at least two are being converted into apartments), & the need for increased walkability of this business district/residential area.

Missing sidewalks from S 90th to S 92nd along Hosmer are on the City’s radar, with solutions being discussed for the utilities located along the east side of the street or the parking lot along the west side of the street, both of which are costly options yet sidewalks are still needed to connect safe pedestrian access.

One idea to create a more community vibe for Hosmer is to reduce traffic speed by narrowing this corridor to one lane in both directions & adding protected bike lanes on each side. What do you think about this solution? Our opportunity to make adjustments to the Transportation Primary Plan is coming up this fall; we’ll keep you posted!

Next month on 7/9 will be Hosmer part deux, from 72nd to 84th 🙂
