WestLake Traffic Light

Yeah! After 20 years of begging, the parents at Westlake Middle School can finally drop off their children without risking life and limb at a crazy chaotic intersection. The photo is from the celebration on April 28. Lots of credit goes to the HarriOak Traffic Committee and specifically to Kathy Orsini, Barton Mayhew, Lina Foltz, Naomi Schiff. Also, major appreciation was expressed for Wlad Wlassowsky, the traffic services director, and his engineers for working closely with the community. Likewise, a big thanks to Claudia Cappio, the former development director who resigned last year. In the end, the money for the light came from the District 3 discretionary fund, which is controlled by Councilwoman Nancy Nadel.
