Is Fletcher Drive important to you but you don’t know who to vote for?

 AVNews has graded all candidates for the upcoming neighborhood council election on their views about the ongoing Fletcher Drive pedestrian safety improvements; grades range from “A” to “F.” (Click here to read more about the Fletcher Drive Road Diet)

  • “A” grade: the candidate strongly supports both pedestrian safety AND preserving all four vehicular traffic lanes. No road diets!

  • “B” grade: the candidate supports pedestrian safety improvements and is concerned about traffic congestion caused by road diets. Did not unequivocally commit to preserving all four traffic lanes on Fletcher Drive.

  • “C” grade: the candidate is open to partial road diet with some vehicular lane reduction to install left-hand turn lanes and supports pedestrian safety improvements.

  • “D” grade: the candidate is open to a partial or full road diet on Fletcher Drive and bike lanes throughout the neighbor and city.

  • “F” grade: the candidate is a total “road diet lover.” He or she supports reducing four traffic lanes to two, one for each way, and install bike lanes along Fletcher Drive. Traffic congestion be damned!
