Pullman is no Vienna, or even Obersnobeurosocialistburg. But for my money, we have the best mayor, best city supervisor, and best city council around.
From today's Moscow-Pullman Daily News:
In other business, the council passed a motion to restrict parking on Larry Street's south side and possibly allow parking on a restricted basis, under police direction. A handful of Military Hill residents gathered at the Tuesday meeting to present the council with nearly 80 signatures from an online petition stating their concerns about traffic in the area.
Public works employees recently restriped the street, allowing for wider parking spaces on either side, but neighbors didn't feel the restriping adequately solved the safety problem.
Pullman High School sporting events, such as baseball games, lead to dense traffic and parking issues, which neighbors and police say may lead to serious accidents. The Pullman School District soon will begin constructing a path from the underutilized high school parking lot to the baseball field, allowing for safety and convenience.
Public works Director Mark Workman said the south side of Larry Street could be posted as "no parking" as early as next week.
