The Rye City Council is holding a special workshop this Wednesday, June 18th at 7pm in the city council room at City Hall and you are invited. Emceed by City Planner Christian Miller, the workshop is an interactive discussion with Rye citizens and city council to discuss on potential traffic safety and sidewalk projects along Oakland Beach Avenue and Forrest Avenue.
(PHOTO: Rocks (like these on Forrest Avenue) placed in the city-owned right-of-way by abutting land owners can pose a safety hazard for pedestrians and motorists alike. Right-of-way issues throughout Rye City will be one of the topics for Wednesday’s workshop.) Also on the agenda: those large rocks—painted white—that some homeowners feel compelled to place by the side of the road. Those rocks usually sit on the city’s “right-or-way” areas – the strip between roadways and private property lines. Something tells us some folks want those white rocks moved.
So if you love your white rocks, if you hate your neighbors’ white rocks or if you think you should be able to safely walk, run and bike in Rye, head down to city hall Wednesday.
