Traffic. Calming?

The City of Calgary is holding an Open House to inform us about proposed changes on 2nd Street SW, the street behind us here at the Purple Perk.

These will include a cycle track on both sides of the street.  The proposal is for 2nd Street to remain 2-way vehicle traffic and for parking on the west side of the street.  Some new pedestrian crosswalks and curb extensions at intersections are proposed.  

The Open House will be held at the Cliff Bungalow – Mission Community Centre on Wednesday, October 30th.

Here’s the details:

Date:  October 30
Time: 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Place:  Cliff Bungalow – Mission Community Centre
            2201 Cliff Street SW
            One block west of 5th Street at 22nd Avenue SW
            The former Cliff Bungalow School

We’re in favour of anything that keeps our customers safer when they’re coming to the Perk for coffee and food.
