Hyattsville officials are set to release the results of a detailed survey which asked University Hills residents for feedback about a planned rehabilitation of the streetscape throughout the city's northern neighborhood.
The city will review the results of the community survey at a meeting scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church on Adelphi Road. During the meeting, officials will also present a revised project schedule and other updates.
The University Hills streetscape overhaul has been met with vocal opposition from some neighborhood residents, who voiced their concerns at a series of contentious community meetings held this past September.
Since those meetings, neighborhood residents have submitted a number of petitions which ask the Hyattsville City Council not to install sidewalks on their streets.
The project, dubbed the University Hills Green Streets initiative, seeks to address a number of different issues with the infrastructure of the northern Hyattsville neighborhood. Planners propose the installation of new sidewalks and the narrowing of residential streets to slow traffic and make the neighborhood more accessible for pedestrians.
