Mayor’s Decision on Roland Ave and University Parkway Corridor
Dear Members of the Roland Park Community,
I write to inform you of the Mayor’s important decision released today involving the Roland Avenue and University Parkway corridor linked here.
Therefore, the DOT meeting at RPEMS (Roland Park Elementary/Middle School) scheduled for Monday, April 1, 2019 is cancelled.
Note that the pair of speed cameras approved for use in the 4700 block will also be deployed as soon as possible.
The process to reach this final decision on Roland Avenue’s design has not been an easy one. It has been challenging for all involved. The City remains committed to providing a low stress bike network and state of the art bicycling infrastructure. The Roland Park Civic League (RPCL) also stands ready to continue working closely with all government agencies to implement well designed infrastructure changes consistent with the Greater Roland Park Master Plan (GRPMP) approved by the City in 2011.
It is my hope, and that of many more community leaders, that we can all move forward collectively and constructively. Thank you for your patience and engagement.
Roland Park Civic League President
and DOT Task Force Member, Roland Avenue
