The Westwood Coalition submitted its approved recommendations to city officials today, including the adoption of the Triangle option, pictured here, corollary improvements on Town Hall grounds and throughout the historic business district, and a planning process for the implementation of the improvements. As we wrote in the transmittal letter to the Mayor, City Council, and department heads, we “…highlight the deep and wide participation of Westwood residents who have engaged richly in discourse about place making and the economic vitality of our neighborhood. We look forward to working with [the city] over the coming years as we bring these recommendations to life.” We also benefited from expert opinion that reinforced community insights and offered important perspective. After months of research and community input, the Coalition is very pleased to have the approval of community groups and residents.
Now, our participating groups are rolling up sleeves to move from vision to planning to reality. The Triangle, and other improvements along Harrison Avenue between Kling and the Cheviot line, will take more planning, public-private partnership, funding, and time, but we are well on our way.
