Sidewalk projects on 7300 block of Jackson Avenue (construction will begin by June), 7500 block of Jackson Avenue (construction funding proposed), sidewalk design funding for 400 block of Boyd Ave, and construction funds for traffic calming work on Prince Georges Avenue as requested by neighborhood.
TENTATIVE repaving of streets at: Boyd (between Aspen and Lincoln), Elm (between Woodland and PG Ave), Larch (between NH Ave and Glaizewood), and Prince Georges (between Belford Pl and NH Ave). Streets are identified for repaving if the quality of existing pavement is below a certain score assigned by our engineer. Some of these projects still might not happen (for example if WSSC or other construction is planned there) but the low scores indicate that if not this year, they will remain a very high priority in future years.
IN LONG BRANCH SLIGO, are funds for raised crosswalks at Flower and Jackson and planning/design funding to change the intersection of Flower with Sligo Creek Parkway in ways that will make more of a T-intersection and slow cars traveling from one street to the other. Both projects were requests of the neighborhood. Note, I encourage advocacy from residents if you want to also see construction funds for the Parkway/Flower project in the budget.
Kitchen compost program does not have specific funding but it could come from (proposed lower) sustainability budget. Larger recycling bin pilot does not have specific funding, but could come from (proposed lower) sustainability budget. Residents are recycling an average of more than 10 lbs per week (which reduces our trash 'tipping' fees).
