PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Dear Neighbors,

North Avondale has a gorgeous fall landscape! One of my favorite fall quotes by Albert Camus is “October is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.” Thank you to everyone in the community that lends a hand to help keep the landscapes, streets, gardens and parks looking lovely.

Meetings

Please join us Tuesday October 9th at 7:00 pm, at North Avondale Recreation center. This will be the monthly North Avondale Neighborhood Association (NANA) meeting. We encourage all community members to attend as we need to help to ensure the neighborhood goals and objectives are discussed to best represent the future interests of North Avondale. All meetings are open to the public. Meeting agenda and minutes are published here http://northavondalecincinnati.com/nana-minutes/

Accomplishments

NANA submitted  their Cincinnati Budget Request (CBR) and  NANA Pedestrian Safety Committee Requests

Safety Study  Project Name :Safer Streets and traffic Flow

There are two (2) intersections within the neighborhood that could be improved and made safer with minor maintenance.

  1. Mitchell Ave at Red Bud Ave. As traffic flows east on Mitchell, there is a sharp curve with a traffic signal shortly after the curve. There exists a flashing light overhead alerting traffic that the traffic light is turning red but it is completely covered by overgrown trees. There are frequent accidents at this intersection as drivers are surprised by traffic stopped at the light.  We ask that the trees be trimmed along Mitchell from Ardmore to Red Bud and consistently maintained going forward.
  2. As traffic flows west on Dana Ave from Victory Pkwy there are two travel lanes. Once past the sharp curve at Winding Way the curb lane ends and parking becomes legal. Drivers are surprised at this sudden reduction in driving lanes and are forced to merge. Frequently these drivers are traveling at a rate of speed higher than posted.  This ‘surprise’ causes panic braking, traffic congestion and aggravation with all drivers.  We propose that the curb lane on west bound Dana be marked as right turn only and force drivers to turn right onto Winding Way.  Right turn arrows should be painted on the pavement and appropriate signage as needed.

Estimated cost $1,500.00
