Here are a few things happening in Bexley that aren’t otherwise covered in this weeks’ Blast.
Have a great weekend! – BK

The Farmers’ Market opening bell rang in a new season of fresh produce and creative local crafts and specialties.  Catch the next market on Thursdays from 4:00 to 7:00 pm on Dawson just north of Main.

This morning we joined the Chamber of Commerce and local residents in cutting the ribbon at the grand opening of Noahla on Main!  This New Orleans inspired restaurant features super fresh seafood, and some truly spectactular offerings.  Check them out soon!

At this week’s One Bexley workshop, participants helped us craft a vision to nurture a community free from racism and prejudice, where all residents and visitors are valued, respected, and empowered to thrive.  The One Bexley project is a joint effort of the City, Schools, Library, and other area organizations.  We’ll be posting highlights from the workshop and next steps in the coming weeks!

At our Calm Corridors Workshop this week, residents heard concepts for slowing traffic and providing a safer environment for our youngest pedestrians and cyclists on their routes to school.  Concepts discussed included tabletop intersections, scramble intersections, bump outs, bike lanes, and more!  Engineering will now begin working on turning some of these ideas into reality, with a planned roll-out as part of our 2024 streets project.
