Please stick to the 8:30am closing time so we can get our kids to school on time.

So frustrating that we( the families that live on this part of Channing) did not get more than one day's notice on a several week street closing during the busiest part of the school year, when we are driving back and forth to schools bringing things and taking things home from end of the year events!

I hope this means when all this work is complete we will see Channing repaved! It was murder on bicycles before; now it will be even more hazardous.

And ayone know when they are finally getting around to repaving Hamilton and Forest? Those roads are way beyond a mess.

> Cresent Park Mom,

Uh ... maybe you did not get the mailing, or see the signs, but I've known about this for months. First it was water mains, and now it's storm drains ... I wonder what's next? Maybe they'll re-route the HSR down Channing too! ;-)

Don't miss out on the discussion!
