Bankers Hill Project Ideas received for the 2012-2013 budget submittal:

  • Place Stop sign on Fifth Avenue either at Ivy or Juniper Streets to slow speeding traffic.
  • On both Fourth and Fifth Avenues, convert alternating blocks to angle parking. Convert west side of the block to angle parking for one-block, and then convert the east side of the adjacent block to angle parking. Repeat this process the length of Fourth and Fifth Avenues through Bankers Hill.
  • Along Sixth Avenue, add diagonal parking along the east side of the Avenue, and narrow the Avenue one-lane in each direction. Add center left turn lane. In the long-term, add parking meters.
  • Along Sixth Avenue, add stop signs and install painted cross walks. Reduce the legal speed limit onSixth Avenueby five-miles per hour. Slow down the traffic in Bankers Hill.
  • Limit the number of Stop signs in Bankers Hill, and use roundabouts instead.
  • Add a Stop sign at the intersection of First Avenue and Ivy Street.
  • Add angle parking to one-side of First Avenue. Leave parallel parking on the other side. This will help calm traffic on First Avenue and will increase the parking supply.
  • Use “blinking” Stop signs to increase the visibility of Stop signs to speeding motorists.
  • Add parking meters to better manage available parking spaces.
  • Survey painted curbs to evaluate and update red, blue, yellow and white curbs.
  • Add motorcycle / scooter / moped parking.
  • Add variable price meters.

  • Remove one-traffic lane on Fourth Avenueto add angle parking.
  • Add Stop sign at First Avenue and Juniper Street, and another along First Avenue and a to be determined cross street two or three-blocks north of the Maple Canyon bridge.
  • Add countdown timers.
  • Add better lighting for pedestrian routes; preferably solar powered.
  • Add Stop signs and traffic signals on Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Avenues.
  • Add painted bulb outs.
  • Add a sidewalk on the west side of Fourth Avenuebetween Palm and Spruce Streets.
  • Add painted crosswalks on Sixth Avenuethat correspond with newly added curb cuts.
  • Upgrade crosswalks by adding painted “zebra stripe” pattern to increase visibility.

  • Without adding more stop signs or lights, add traffic calming on 6th Ave between Laurel and Elm to slow traffic. For example: Add speed indicator as there is north of Laurel or a couple of pedestrian crosswalks.
