This is a proposal by a resident in the neighborhood who used to work as an urban planner. This was proposed last Fall when the first attempt at the street vacation was proposed. Notice the only difference between his proposal and the city’s new compromise is he proposed keeping a two way street instead of one-way.

Why were 9 homes sacrificed? They paid property tax and provided middle income housing. The citizen plan is better. It keeps the public ingress/egress easement and preserves better access for emergency services.
