Halloween is two weeks away and kids are designing their costumes in anticipation. Last year, the Mountainview/Bayview neighborhood tried something new to streamline traffic and provide a safer space for trick-or-treaters on foot.
Mountainview and East Bayview became “Halloween One-Ways” from 5-8 p.m. on Oct. 31. Cars flowed west on Bayview and east on Mountainview. The lane closed to cars opened a pedestrian lane from 5-8 p.m., with exceptions made for residents trying to navigate home during those hours.
The experiment was an overwhelming success thanks to great volunteers and the support of the Homer Police Department. We look forward to repeating it this year. Volunteers are needed. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. Thank you, Homer.
