What's the point of having a nice park and lovely forest nearby when it is a bit hard accessing them?
Turning out of that parking lot usually takes a long time, and the driveway is a bit too narrow for the amount of cars using the parking lot on a warm day. A traffic light and crosswalks would be a big help.
I can understand the desire for a light to the entrance of LaBagh Woods at Kilbourn but when Target on Foster opened a new light was installed to allow cars to enter the shopping parking lot. This light is, at most, one block west from Kilbourn, the location for the desired new light. There is also a light at Kostner, two streets east of Kilbourn. Instead of having lights at major intersections every four blocks, Foster in that area would have four lights between Kostner (W. 4400) and Cicero Avenue (W. 4800, including the Target light and the proposed light at Kilbourn. Four lights in four blocks is absurd; even with timing the lights cars could stopping at every block essentially, slowing traffic considerably. I suggest that the Chicago Dept. on Transportation do a study to assess the amount of car and pedestrian traffic in and out of LaBagh Woods at Kilbourn, and see if a fourth light is really necessary. I understand your position but I’m concerned about the impact
