Unformatted text preview: 1. Original To: Ken Morgan From: Jane Sanders Date: April 9, 2002 Re: Request for input Ken, thanks for requesting my thoughts regarding Midwest City’s Master Plan. I believe we should work on establishing neighborhood pocket parks wherever possible. They could contain picnic tables and open areas for throwing a frisbee or football. The parks would make small playgrounds quickly accessible to families and youth groups and would add a nice touch of green among our ever increasing miles of asphalt and concrete. Other cities have had great success with the pocket- park idea, and I think our citizens would like the idea as well. I also think Midwest’s most pressing problem is poor traffic flow in a north south direction. State Street and Arlington Boulevard seem to carry most of the traffic volume in this direction, citizens need several other alternate routes and I know there are probably three other routes that should be addressed, also. We also should work on neighborhood lighting so our streets are not so dark at night. With gang-related problems edging upward, improved lighting would be welcomed by most residents. For many years we have discussed this project, and I think we should now take action. I compliment you on your recent “Listening” sessions held with Midwest citizens. I have heard many very positive comments from these meetings. Best wishes to you as you sift through all the input. 2.

My second recommendation is to work on neighborhood lighting so our streets are not so dark at night. With gang-related problems edging upward, improved lighting would be welcomed by most residents. For many years we have discussed this project, and I think we should now take action. Finally, I believe we should work on establishing neighborhood pocket parks wherever possible.
