College Avenue Street Closure
Anyone who has been around our parish knows that the street between the Church and School is a hazard for our students and for our parishioners. People drive very fast down College Ave. and create a hazard for anyone crossing the street or for our students who play and cross that street during recess. Even with the barricades there have been too many instances that have caused concern for the safety of our students, which is a great concern.
We are looking to petition the City Council to close the street permanently. The plan will be to permanently close the end at 18th street and then put raising and lowering barriers at the other end of 17th street so that we still can have access when needed and for emergencies. We will have a plan in the bulletin and a rendering as we move forward. It will be of great benefit to our parish. I thank Dave Bauer and Jeff Bergman, our aldermen here in Ward 2, for their guidance in this project. I am truly grateful.
Please, if you have any questions, concerns, or support, reach out to myself or any of our Parish Council members.
