Tribal Council and the Safety Committee have recommended turning Ouray Drive into a two-way road. A crew has painted a RED line to prevent parking in this area and has installed “No Parking” signs. Making this a two-way street will allow fire engines and other traffic to move safely in this area since it will not be congested by parking on both sides of the streets.
The Tribe greatly appreciates everyone’s cooperation with this important safety matter.
