Members of Charlottesville city staff and City Council met with people in the Fry's Spring and Johnson Village neighborhoods Thursday night.
It was a chance for residents to meet with city leaders face to face to talk about issues in the neighborhoods. A focus of Thursday night's meeting was how to improve speeding. People discussed putting in speed bumps to slow traffic.
"I wanted to talk to the city council members about how my neighbors and I can interact with the city to help develop our street, particularly in terms of the traffic calming. We have a lot of children, we have a lot of foot traffic, university students and children walking to Johnson Elementary School," said William Abrahamson, a Charlottesville resident.
The next Our Town meeting is scheduled for October in the Woolen Mills neighborhood.
