6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11 at Community Health Professionals, 1200 S Main St.


2nd Public meeting to discuss proposed safety improvements for the intersection of Buckeye Ave and  Main Street. 

Review of 1st Public Meeting held June 13th, 2023. 

a) The intersection of Buckeye and Main is a safety concern. 

b) One-way traffic pattern would improve the intersection – traffic should be one-way east from Gilbert to  Johnson. 

c) Reverse angle parking on the south side of Buckeye seems to be the best option to increase parking on  Buckeye Avenue. 

d) The Buckeye Improvement Project should be professionally engineered and contracted out for best  results. 


e) We should hold a 2nd Public Meeting for final determination of the scope of project.  

Discussion for June 11th, 2024 meeting 
Discussion of 2 concepts for safety improvement (A & B) 

A) One-way design with traffic flowing away from Main Street on both sides: traffic would flow east  towards Johnson St. and west towards Gilbert St.
