Willows street closings

Dear Council Members,

I can't attend this evening's meeting, but I'd like to say that I
believe that the street closings as currently posted are overkill. In my
observation, through traffic is not an issue during the morning commute,
but things are pretty busy from late afternoon until around 7 PM.
Closing off the streets during those hours may make sense, though of
course it will make the commute along Willow to the freeway even more
nightmarish than it already is. But closing off the neighborhood streets
all day, every day, is likely to hurt local businesses-- these
businesses need the visibility and accessibility open streets provide.
One of the joys of living in the Willows is being able to walk around
the corner to La Hacienda or Cafe Zoe or Mardini's, etc., and closing
these streets permanently could put some or all of the businesses-- and
hence the vitality of the neighborhood-- at risk for no good reason.
