Anyone who drives down East Sherman Avenue will understand the city’s concern that this area of town has not kept up with the robust growth and development of other commercial districts. The city government has made some limited improvements including changes to parking orientation, roadway width, sidewalks and landscaping between 16th and 17th Streets. If you haven’t been down East Sherman in awhile, drive by and check it out before our Friday meeting. Plan to share your ideas and suggestions with Dan. He is here to listen and will share your feedback with the council.
