Raising Baltimore - Walkability Compromised in Southeast Baltimore

No crosswalk signal at Aliceanna and Wolfe — a very busy intersection
Raising Baltimore: "I am writing to ask you to stand up for neighborhoods and walkability in Baltimore City — to move Baltimore forward as a progressive, walkable city that is safe and hospitable to residents, businesses, and visitors — instead of taking us backward to a far less enlightened time when cities were designed only around the needs of the car.

As you know, in November, the Baltimore City Council adopted a 'Complete Streets' initiative, which binds the city to consider ALL users in transportation and planning decisions — this means, as you know, that decisions about our streets should consider the needs of walkers, bikers, and transit riders, NOT just automobiles."
