City Council asked to look into Boundary issue
According to today's front page article in the Kirksville Daily Express, the Airport & Transportation Commission is asking City Council to look into the Boundary issue. Public Works director John Buckwalter had a good point: opening of the Hwy 63 bypass will be a good opportunity to reassess traffic patterns on several streets.
I am repeatedly surprised and delighted at the support this issue has gotten, from the petition signatures that poured in to the willingness of the A&TC to make a recommendation to City Council. I know this sort of thing takes time, so I don't expect any changes in less than a year, but I am optimistic that there will be changes, and that Kirksville does want to accommodate walking and bicycling as a healthy alternative to motorized transportation.
