"Attached are two ideal candidates for Greenstreets.
1. The first one is on the junction of Utopia Parkway and Fresh Meadow Lane, where drivers face a dangerous S-Curve. My proposal would straighten the parkway, resulting in a larger traffic triangle, and more park space.
2. The second proposal would turn the widest point of Hillside Avenue near Springfield Boulevard into a parkway. The central traffic island would instead be replaced with an express route. This two block stretch would resemble Eastern Parkway, with bike lanes and benches on both sides. Homes on both sides of the busy avenue would be shielded from the traffic and pollution.
Please note that I am not an architect nor a traffic engineer, just a concerned local resident who wants to improve our city's landscape." - anonymous
Oh, well then the city has no use for you. (Just kidding.)
