When this process started – back when only city staff was at the table – the idea of presenting traffic signal lights horizontal instead of vertically had no support. Now it’s the recommendation, as shown in the above presentation slide. When Laura Story asked if “anyone will have a cow” if the horizontal traffic signals are chosen, architect Anthony McDermid replied “I will have a cow if we don’t.”
BTW: Ignore the building that the James Burnett folks show at the corner of Main and Walker. I’ve seen this building over and over again in their drawings – they’re just very intent on adding a second floor and renovating it.
It looks like we’re one step close to having horizontal traffic lights. Group just agreed on it, though I’m sure there are other reviews to come (not sure if this all ends with a council review or vote or not). It also looks like the bike racks created by Urban Neighbors will stay in the mix and be augmented by new ones designed to match or at least not conflict with existing bike racks.
