Let's make our downtown a more pleasant, attractive experience for the citizen and vising pedestrians who come to shop, walk eat and explore Harrisonburg downtown by diverting large commercial truck traffic via [e.g.] Rt. 11, Erickson (280), Rt. 42, Mt. Clinton Pike, thus eliminating primary culprits of near-road air and noise pollution while sustaining our vibrant downtown.

The Great "U" Of Rockingham County Come 2024:

Drop a straight line from Betts Road to Cross Keys. Draw a straight line west to Bridgewater. Draw a straight line north to Hinton.

There "U" have it. Harrisonburg's future tax base and the plans for a third high school. Think it can't happen?

In anticipation of "return to school and college", post radar speed indicator signs for those areas. Peach Grove Avenue from Stonespring intersection to Port Republic Road of particular interest as drivers "jockey" at excessive speeds to "beat" one another to the merge lane.

Social media has become an integral part of our day-to-day lives. Businesses of all size and shapes have started making the most of available mediums. Today we will try to anatomize tips on social media for small businesses. There are a plethora of small businesses eyeing social medium to promote their business/services. However, majorly these small businesses are failing or not being able to make optimum use of social media for their business growth. There are many theories and strategies on how to effectively use social media for established brands, but the topic social media for small businesses is seldom addressed. According to Digital state of eMarketing India 2017 Octane Research:

Hanging on both sides of the courthouse as you drive downtown are the huge obnoxious banners for a Shenandoah valley gay pride event. I don't know the criteria for placing banners on the courthouse property but this offends me to no end. I have heard many people reiterate that this is extremely offensive to them and they resent that they have to be exposed to this kind of material on their own city property. While this issue disturbs and offends me I respect the right of people to organize and execute this event however the promotion of this on city property is dead wrong. Leaving it up offends many people, removing it only means that a private entity has to seek conventional means to promote their event. The city would not allow other sexually themed events to hang on court square, there should not be an exception for this. It's trash and hurts the city.

My family and I moved to Harrisonburg about 5 months ago. Since moving here, we have noticed several bad accidents happen at the intersection of Pear Street and Erickson Avenue. I believe that these accidents could have been prevented if there was a traffic light in place. It is very difficult to turn onto Erickson Avenue from Pear Street, due to oncoming traffic coming from both directions. Coming from Russel Drive to Pear Street, it sometimes takes over five minutes to make a safe turn. If a traffic light were in place, these issues could undoubtedly be resolved.

Signs that are needed downtown

The stretch from Mosby Road to Pleasant Valley Road, both ways: Bicyclists and Joggers are using or running in the wrong lane; autos are routinely exceeding 50 miles per hour especially at rush hour; autos are driving in the turning lane for excessive distances; or recklessly pulling around others trying to merge from the turning lane.
