a couple of local friends have started a new blog focused on monterey blvd. (which flows through multiple neighborhoods, the districts of two supervisors and at least one microclimate!) called friends of monterey. check it out!
considering monterey’s dual role as neighborhood artery and ad hoc feeder freeway, friends of monterey will focus on safety issues and measures by us local residents to keep from getting hit by speeding cars.
for instance, blogger jonathan has designed some signs (above) that can be posted on street-facing windows and that we hope to post on the thoroughfare to encourage people to not plow through our ‘hood like bats out of hell, to paraphrase my ma.
welcome friends! and, umm … godspeed?
