The 17th Street Merchants and Community Assn., a grass-roots group lobbying against the proposed widening of the street, has launched a Web site at o7 http://www.17thstreet.orgf7 . The site features links, a copy of the group's petition and notices of upcoming meetings, among other bits of information. The association is made up of business and property owners, and residents who are trying to stop the city's plans to widen East 17th Street to six lanes, from Orange Avenue to Irvine Avenue.
