10K/5K/Santa Walk-Run/Bike Tours
We’re all aware that our neighborhood is an obvious first choice for events involving walks and runs due to the perfectly-located, quiet, safe and welcoming location. Where we’ve run into issues is with the quantity of these city-sponsored events which can create safety hazards for both participants and our own residents pulling in and out of driveways, or street closures requiring detours.
In March, board members Robin Abrahams and Mike Ziskind met with the city’s event coordinator to share concerns and request more information on how many events are planned for next season. We suggested that any events include enough volunteers to keep participants safe and asked that any directional markings which are sprayed onto the street be removed upon an event’s conclusion.
The City plans to communicate with us ahead of time about upcoming events. Watch our website for announcements.
