Make Keystone Avenue Safer for ALL Residents

Bonnie Weber, Chairwoman, Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County 

and

Neoma Jardon, Representative Ward 5

Make Keystone Avenue Safer for ALL Residents!

Sincerely, 
[Your name]

Once you have signed the petition consider going to the Final Keystone Open House meeting on May 22nd! 

The Keystone Avenue Corridor study will evaluate the options for reconfiguring the avenue into a Complete Street which accommodates all modes of alternative transportation. This transformation will benefit all users of the corridor by lowering traffic speeds, providing better sightlines, and lowering the level of stress of travelers. These users include pedestrians, wheelchairs, baby joggers, high school and university students, runners, dog walkers, skateboarders, bicyclists and motorists.

The community will benefit from the reduction in car crashes and improve safety for children and residents with vision and mobility disabilities. Previous road conversion projects in Reno have shown a dramatic 40% reduction in car crashes. These crashes cost our community substantially in time, money and human suffering.

The Keystone neighborhood will also benefit from the economic and social improvements derived from a safe and livable community. Accommodation of residents who travel by alternative means improves real estate values and profits for local businesses.

In short, for those of us who live by and use the public right-of-way in our cars, on our bikes and on our feet, we request that the Regional Transportation Commission make Keystone Ave safer and more usable for all our citizens.

Please make Keystone a safe corridor for all residents of the community. Make it safe, accessible for people traveling by foot, car, and on wheels (skateboards, wheelchairs, bicycles, strollers) and a livable, walkable street.

This type of infrastructure is our future. If you have any doubts look at cities like Portland, OR, Boulder, CO, or Minneapolis, MN. All growing and all in the top 10 of bike and Pedestrian friendly cities!!

I’m a new Keystone resident and hope to see increased safety and access for me to bike to and from work on Keystone.

Please make Keystone a Complete Street. A Complete Street is a safer street and will serve all people who use the road.

Having just moved to this neighborhood, I am constantly having to avoid this interchange due to how dangerous it is. That’s just, like, my opinion man.

I live near downtown, I work downtown (CrazyToothStudio.com), and I don’t own a car – I bike everywhere – and Reno definitely has room for improvement with it’s streets but also with it’s education when it comes to sharing the road!

I can not attend the meeting, but I have attended them in the past. I still do not understand why, despite overwhelming data that this will make the road safer, bikable, and will not hinder the flow of traffic, this has not been done. Follow the data, diet the road and add in the bike lanes
