(POWELL, Ohio)—June 5, 2019— The City of Powell is hosting a public forum to discuss whether or not to extend the time frame for restricted left turns at the Olentangy and Liberty Street intersection. The forum will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 18 in the Municipal Building Council Chambers, 47 Hall Street.
The City’s Operations Committee plans to lead the discussion on whether to extend the prohibited time frame to make left turns at the intersection.
“Our goal is to gather feedback from our businesses and residents,” said City Manager Steve Lutz. “We have taken a number of steps the past few years to improve the flow of traffic in our downtown with the completion of the Murphy Parkway extension, the addition of traffic signals, installing wayfinding signage and more.”
It is illegal to make a left turn at the intersection from 4-7 p.m. Monday-Friday. This prohibition was part of the Keep Powell Moving Initiative – an effort to improve traffic circulation and increase walkability in the City’s downtown.
Comments and feedback may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the public forum.
