  25. 25. 26 Sent: Tuesday, September 08, 2015 9:48 PM Subject: Love the road diet on Rainier Hi there, Just wanted to share my positive feedback about the road diet you recently implemented on Rainier through Columbia City. The area feels much safer now and I'm more comfortable making turns. I have traveled through there many times now and don't notice any significant slow downs. Often traffic seems to move more smoothly than it did before. It's a positive change for the community and I love it. Can't understand why people complained so vehemently. People are just afraid of change. Thanks so much for putting this in place.
  26. 26. What’s next? 27 • Citywide speed limits – Non-arterials: 20 MPH – Arterials: 25 MPH de facto • Design standards – Lane widths • Master plan development and implementation • 2016 safety corridors • Enforcement coordination
