Jordan PIC best attended ever

Potential changes to Jordan Village brought out record crowds at Tuesday night’s public information centre at the Jordan Fire Hall.

About 100 people attended the session.

The meeting was part of the Town of Lincoln’s class environmental assessment aspect of the process.

The design has evolved considerably as the process has moved along, said Coun. Dave Thompson.

“We want to create a comfortable, enjoyable place for people as a walkable destination and simultaneously increase the prosperity of all the local businesses in the Village and the enjoyment of our residents,” said Thompson.

“I was very pleased with the high attendance, the quantity of positive feedback and thoughtful suggestions.”

Lincoln CAO Mike Kirkopoulos said input from the community has been key to developing changes to a prospective design.

A major focus is the intersections at King with 19th Street and Main Street.

“The previous option envisioned Main Street and 19th Street south and King Street to be signalized with the north portion of 19th Street restricted at King Street to right turns in and out only,” said Kirkopoulos.

“However, based on feedback from the public, this previous option was not being well received by the community. As such, we went back to the drawing board and refined one of the other options that proposes to make both legs of 19th Street and King Street signalized with Main Street closed at King Street.”

Parking in the area is also a front-burner issue, but Kirkopoulos said it is still developing.

“Overall, we will be upgrading 19th Street to an urban standard from King To Fourth Avenue and providing a significant amount of on-street parking opportunities that currently do not exist. This is very conceptual at this point and requires further analysis and discussion,” he said.

Coun. Paul MacPherson said reaction was generally positive.

“Overall though, the project puts forward a vision for the broader community that was positively received,” he said.

“There were definitely more positive than negative comments.”
