Waynedale traffic open house June 27 Residents invited to discuss planned improvements.

Residents are invited to help improve planned improvements to the corridors around the intersection of Bluffton and Lower Huntington roads by attending an open house 4-7 p.m. June 27 at the Waynedale United Methodist Church, 2501 Church St.

The proposed plan addresses four key goals: improving connectivity and safety for all modes of transportation; developing streetscape enhancements; encouraging zoning that is compatible with the neighborhoods; and enhancing the Waynedale brand to highlight the identity, history and pride of the area and its business community.

The plan was developed through a process that included community surveys, stakeholder meetings, field assessments and review of best practices. Representatives from the Waynedale Business Chamber and the city’s Community Development Division will be available to discuss the proposed plan, answer questions and collect residents’ comments and suggestions. The public is welcome to stop in any time during the available hours. A raffle will be held for prizes provided by chamber members, and light refreshments will be available, courtesy of Kingston Residence.
