Cook Street Stop Signs

TO The City of Denver Public Works

WHEREAS in the South City Park neighborhood, we currently have a safety hazard at the intersection of 16th Ave & Cook St. Our neighborhood's boundaries are 17th Ave to the north, Colfax to the south, Josephine to the west and Colorado Blvd to the east. The intersection at 16th & Cook is the only example of traffic on Cook not having a stop sign -- the rest of the intersections have a stop sign on their named streets (Detroit, Fillmore, Milwaukee, Steele, etc.).

AND WHEREAS there is a stop sign on 16th on Fillmore, Steele & Garfield, there is a 4-way intersection. There are many near misses of accidents with both vehicles and pedestrians at the 16th & Cook intersection because many who are not familiar with the neighborhood assume it is a 4-way as they stop on 16th and don't adequately check for traffic on Cook.

WE the undersigned petitioners and residents of South City Park ask that:

The City install stop signs on the Cook St sides of this intersection at 16th to maintain consistency and increase safety.
