Stamford streets are about to get a whole lot safer for pedestrians and cyclists.

This week, the Board of Representatives officially passed the Complete Streets Law, requiring city engineers to include pedestrian-friendly design components.  That means you might see things like shorter crosswalks or longer signal times when crossing the streets in the future.  This law comes after a string of pedestrian related accidents and even deaths; the most recent being back in July.

The search begins for a permanent principal at Stamford High School.  As you might you already know, the school is currently operating under interim principal Rodney Bass.  Bass came into the role back in October in the wake of the sexual scandal involving the suspension of principal Donna Valentine.  According to the Board of Education's job post, the position requires a minimum of five years teaching experience and three years administrative experience.

And if you’re at the Government Center in the near future, check out the work of Stamford Photographer Michael Callahan.  The exhibit labeled "Art of Observation" is on display until Friday February 27th, right across from Mayor David Martin’s office on the 10th floor.
