A lot has been happening around Cully Boulevard these days. In addition to the green street improvements that were recently completed and celebrated by the community on June 21, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability hosted a Roll and Stroll event to kick off the Cully Main Street and Local Street Plans project. See Cully Neighborhood Roll and Stroll Summary for event results.
Existing Conditions Report now available online
To start the project, staff researched and documented existing conditions of the Cully Main Street area and the Cully neighborhood overall, particularly its transportation system. The results of that research are summarized in the new Existing Conditions Report, which includes key findings about business climate conditions, transportation and mobility options and challenges, and community desires for enhanced neighborhood services.
