Additional comments:
As a landlocked and depressed area, funds should be used to do everything possible to accomplish the following goals in this order: 1. Beautify Lealman through landscaping and lighting to reduce crime and accidents 2. Reduce stress on traffic flow through the increase of non-personal vehicle transportation options (transit, walking, biking). This is a heavily biked area due to many residents having limited access to transportation. Community redevelopment funds should be used for the most at risk residents. We make it easier for them to bike to work, they're less prone to crime and likely to get in an accident. By adding a center lane for turning much of the back up that takes place due to people turning would be addressed. I do not believe that spending money to widen the road for four lanes is necessarily the best route. There should be room made for potential rapid transit in the future.

While the improvements are a great idea,and the basic updates like paving some streets and alley ways , and basic lighting will help .But to me if we have no retail shopping and retail stores filling all the vacant spaces we will remain a 6 restaurant location. Adding retail will give people a destination choice and a place to walk off the food. It creates foot traffic which the area desperately needs. Now the area seems dominated by one company. And too many vacant lots

Additional comments:
If anything, 54th Ave. N. through Lealman needs to allow as many lanes as possible to facilitate the east-west traffic flow. Adding a center turn lane on 54th is a must! The additional left turn lane expanding at 54th and 49th would make for better traffic flow and fewer accidents and is very much needed.
