Great stuff. The little things matter, especially in regards to walkability and safe cycling. We've said this for year: these modes of transportation can be bolstered and improved for very little money. I think we need to continue to work with city hall and see the zebra crossings become the standard across the city. Many cities use these extensively. They are so much bolder and more visible.

And yes, for $6,000 to create painted bumpouts and safer crossings, I'd love to see that approach taken all the way down Locke, James, Cannon, King, Main etc..... Eventually we can start converting some into proper bumpouts with trees and pavement, but at least get the framework in place. NYC has become famous for using 'pilot projects' all over the place as a low-cost means of increasing urban safety.
