We, the undersigned members of the Williamson Street Coop and residents of the neighborhood, feel that the proposed two-lane driveway from the Coop parking lot onto Jenifer Street will decrease safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, children, and seniors. It will substantially increase motor vehicle traffic, noise, and pollution on Jenifer St., which is now a safe, kid-friendly bicycling and pedestrian corridor. Both the Marquette and Schenk-Atwood neighborhood associations oppose a permanent driveway. The Coop nonetheless, disregarding neighborhood and member opposition, is forging ahead with its plans. Therefore, we, the undersigned, oppose the Williamson St. Coops proposed construction of a permanent driveway onto Jenifer Street.
