Town Hall on Proposed Roundabout Is Sunday
Councilwoman Paulette Carr is hosting the informational meeting.
Do you have questions about the roundabout proposed for Delmar Blvd in University City's historic plaza near City Hall?
This weekend, a town hall meeting hopes to provide residents the chance to ask questions and get answers.
Councilwoman Paulette Carr is holding the town hall meeting at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 20, at Heman Park Community Center.
Carr said she hopes to clear up any misunderstandings about the project. A release on the event reads as follows:
The initial design for the Loop Trolley included a roundabout for Delmar Blvd. in front of City Hall. As the design for the Trolley evolved, it was determined that the roundabout would not be used for a trolley turnaround. It should instead be considered on its own merits as a traffic control device and aesthetic addition to our historic Civic Plaza. The project is funded by a federal grant. The plans for the roundabout are separate from the Loop Trolley and have yet to be approved by the City Council.
There seems to be a lack of information and some misinformation about the roundabout project. This meeting is your opportunity to hear about the plans, discuss the advantages and disadvantages, and voice your opinions before decisions have been made.
The meeting is open to the public.
