Re-Striping of Lake Avenue

[polldaddy poll=2156175]

We have just been informed of a proposal to re-stripe North Lake Ave from Altadena Dr. to the top at Loma Alta.  Speed has always been a problem on this segment of the street, and a traffic calming and speed reduction technique has been proposed. The plan is to reduce the street from four lanes to two lanes, with a two way left turn lane in the center. Chairman Sund has requested as much community input as possible.

Do you believe that reducing the number of lanes on Lake will be effective in reducing speed? Do you think it will be aesthetically damaging? Or do you have other suggestions on reducing speed in this area?
