Honorable Walter Burnett

Chairman, Committee on Pedestrian and Traffic Safety City Hall, Room 300 121 N. LaSalle St. Chicago, IL 60602

 

Dear Chairman Burnett,

 

Please be advised that I plan to introduce an ordinance to City Council to lower the existing speed limit to 20 mph on N Damen Avenue between W Diversey Parkway and W Belmont Avenue. The introduction of this ordinance is in support of an upcoming bicycle project and the citywide Vision Zero efforts.

 

It would be appreciated if you would send a commissioner's authority letter to the Department of Transportation to expedite the installation of these signs pending the passage of the ordinance.

 

Your assistance with this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Alderman 32nd Ward

 

Sincerely,

 

Committee on Pedestrian and Traffic Safety November 12, 2020 City Council
