Help Oakland Name Its Own “Summer Streets”

So we took the “Sunday Streets” issue to the streets -- literally -- at last Thursday’s Uptown Unveiled ! event at 19th and Telegraph, which itself provided a dramatic illustration of how sweet it is to block off the streets for community entertainment. Hundreds of Oaklanders filled the streets to enjoy performances, people-watching, and other free activities. WOBO’s table drew a stream of walkers and cyclists, and we tapped their creativity to gather suggestions for a name. Together with the ideas generated at Tuesday’s Volunteers Meeting, we’ve got quite a list.
Ideas include "Open Roads," "Streets for People," "Walkland" and "East Bay Easy" -- leave a comment  to put in your vote!
Elsewhere, PA Walks and Bikes  brought up an opportunity to participate  in updating the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Pedestrian Guide ; Upper Manhattan residents gave the MTA their suggestions for better routes for the Bx20 bus ; and a member in St. Louis Park, MN  is looking for advice about a local bridge.
