Wesson Leads a Safer Walk at Holman

Council President Wesson leads community residents in the first walk across the new signal and crosswalk at West Adams and 4th Avenue.

When Joni Arlain, the receptionist at Holman United Methodist Church, contacted Council President Herb Wesson about the danger pedestrians face while crossing West Adams at 4th Avenue, the councilman looked into the situation and discovered that there were also pedestrian safety concerns at the nearby Mid-City Prescott School for Enriched Sciences.

Wesson decided that something needed to be done, and set in motion a series of actions through the Department of Transportation that resulted in raising the funds needed to install a new signal and crosswalk at that location.

In April, Wesson and other 10th District community stakeholders celebrated the completion of a new signal and crosswalk at West Adams Boulevard and 4th Avenue, adjacent to Holman United Methodist Church.

“Crossing West Adams and 4th Avenue has been a very risky proposition for pedestrians who attend the Holman Church, and for students walking to and from the school,” said Wesson.  “I’m grateful for the community input, and for the opportunity to put the city’s resources in action to make the neighborhood safer.”

Stakeholders joining with Wesson in the celebration included Holman Pastor Kevin Sauls, the student leadership at nearby Mid-City Prescott School for Enriched Sciences, the United Neighbors Neighborhood Council, representatives from the Department of Transportation, and an array of West Adams residents and city officials.
