continue to fight for important neighborhood upgrades in my Ward. Improvements such
as traffic safety measures and small beautification updates, all add up to
improving the quality of life in the Manton neighborhood," stated
President Pro Tempore Michael Correia.
first resolution requests that the City Forester replace trees along Atwells
Avenue removed during a sidewalk replacement. The requested trees' site is
between Academy Avenue and Mt. Pleasant Avenue and will help beautify the
neighborhood. This particular stretch of street is heavily trafficked, and
having new trees planted will play an essential role in air pollution
second resolution requests that the Department of Public Property install a
gate at the District 6 Police Substation parking lot entrance.
third resolution requests the installation of a crosswalk at the Manton Skate
Park entrance by the Department of Public Works and the City Traffic Engineer.
Pro Tempore Correia recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the newly
renovated Manton Skate Park, located at 588 Manton Avenue, and believes that
this crosswalk will help keep pedestrians and cyclist safe as they visit the
park and the Greenway.
final resolution, a traffic calming request, calls on the Department of Public
Works and the City Traffic Engineer to install additional safety signage along
Manton Avenue. Specifically, the resolution requests a "SLOW CURVE"
notification along the 800 block of Manton Avenue.
look forward to seeing these community improvements completed, and I extend my
gratitude to the men and women of the DPW, Public Property, and the Parks
Department who collaborate to make our City clean, safe and livable,"
