  1. Hmm… the “Take back the boulevard” theme is interesting. I always though that the medians on BOTH Colorado and Eagle Rock Blvds were such a waste of space. Ideally, we would have trains running down the streets again, but otherwise, it would be great to run the actual street through the middle, and bring the green areas (from the center) to the sides. It could be like little parks and local businesses could benefit from additional space. Restaurant Seating like in Paris, anyone? 🙂
