Effort is Part of Territorial Charter Days Community Improvement Projects

Silver City -- Finding cost-effective measures to slow traffic in Silver City is an ongoing public safety challenge, and Mayor Pro Tem Cynthia Bettison and town staff invite residents to come out and be part of the solution this Saturday, November 16th, when volunteers will paint a 3-D crosswalk at the intersection of Yucca and 23rd streets.

"This community public safety improvement project is designed to test this idea and see if it slows drivers down," said Bettison, who represents Silver City District One residents. "Public safety is always of the utmost concern to town staff and the town council, and this crosswalk is a way to test its effectiveness. It's also a fun way to get to know your neighbors, meet our public safety staff and participate in a community project that benefits everyone."
