Homewood officials to present first phase of 183rd Street improvement plan

Village staff will present to the Homewood Board of Trustees an initial plan for addressing safety issues on 183rd Street at the board's regular meeting Tuesday, March 22.

The plan is the next step in a process started when the village commissioned a traffic study last year that included an analysis of safety issues along the thoroughfare and suggestions for addressing problems.

The first phase could include:

Fall events
