Lowry Neighbors Taking Action - You Can Help
by: Gina Febraro
A group of Lowry residents are joining together to make Lowry safer for pedestrians and bikers. Led by South Neighborhood homeowner, Gina Febbraro, the group has engaged city officials, the Denver Police Department and traffic engineers from around the country to come up with workable solutions for making Lowry a more walk-able and bike-able community and to work with the City to get those solutions implemented.
Did you know that 40% of Lowry’s 8,336 residents are children, youth and seniors? There are also five schools and two assisted living facilities in the Lowry community (and one more assisted living facility under construction). Children and seniors are the two most likely groups to be injured or killed by cars while walking or biking.
The recently formed Lowry Pedestrian and Bike Safety Committee aims to improve the safety of people walking, biking and driving in Lowry’s wonderful neighborhoods by improving community design and positively influencing driver behavior. More than 20 committed and concerned residents and businesses are currently working across sectors to bring about change. The committee supports community members’ choice to walk and bike in Lowry and to use the many amenities such as parks, restaurants, and local shops is key to achieving the vision.
Please take our survey so that we can learn about your beliefs and concerns regarding walking, biking and driving safety in Lowry. It is anonymous and will take less than five minutes to complete. Thank you!
