REMINDER: Despite the cold temps forecast, we are going to stick with our first standout tomorrow morning, March 4, 2017 @ 11 am, at Washington & Cummins in Roslindale Square (Adams Park side of Washington). Bundle up and come on down!
Motivated by the common sense concept that slower vehicle speeds lead to safer streets, Boston, under the leadership of Mayor Walsh, recently exercised its local option to reduce the citywide speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph as of January 9. To draw attention to and increase awareness of this important change, WalkUP Roslindale will be organizing 60-minute standouts with hand-held signs around our neighborhood on each of the next 4 Saturdays.
Each standout will start at 11 am and end at 12 pm. The locations are as follows:
March 4 – Roslindale Square (meet on Adams Park side of Cummins/Washington)
March 11 – 5-way American Legion/Canterbury/Cummins (meet by the fire station)
March 18 – Walter/South (meet by Green T)
March 25 – Washington at WR Parkway (meet by the Dunkin Donuts)
We have secured a baker’s dozen signs from Councilor O’Malley (many thanks!), but it would be also be terrific for those interested in participating to bring your own homemade signs promoting the change as well. Thanks!!
