Arbor Lodge NA is seeking someone interested in Transportation issues.  Our lead person on this moved out of the area.

Are you interested in bicycle and pedestrian safety;  willing to consider how cars get around our neighborhood safely?   If so, this might be of interest to you.  Overlook NA has worked successfully with Arbor Lodge on some issues; new issues are coming up possibly with Kenton on Denver and Lombard where ODOT is planning work this summer/fall.  Yes, ODOT, not PBOT as Lombard is a Hwy 30 Bypass.

Please let me know, arborlodgeginger@gmail.com, if you are interested in this opening with the Arbor Lodge Neighborhood Association.  I'm happy to add info, and answer your questions.  Thank you.
