Traffic Calming Original Post, Edited
Because these two streets are highly traveled by many residents to get through the neighborhood and the installation of the infrastructure is a considerable cost, Councilman Gallagher and his staff agree the entire neighborhood needs to be part of the decision to move forward with the project. The August 27 briefing is the first presentation of this proposal - residents who live on Haskin and Seidel or travel these streets frequently, are encouraged to attend the briefing. An update is planned for the whole neighborhood at the Fall General Meeting, which will be in October.
"When Councilman Soules was in office Transportation Capital Improvements (at that time known as Public Works) asked our office for some areas in the district that are in need of traffic calming solutions to help with speeding and cut through traffic. TCI is attempting to move away from the use of speed humps because of their ineffectiveness and cost so these location submissions were investigated for potential installation of other reputable traffic calming methods. Two of the locations we submitted were the streets Haskin and Seidel, between Eisenhauer and Oak Leaf) in the Northwood area. TCI has come back to our office with an idea for slowing traffic down on these streets and with our office they would like to brief the board on the idea and then plan on presenting to the neighborhood as a whole. Because these two streets are highly traveled by many residents to get through the neighborhood and the installation of the infrastructure is a considerable cost, Councilman Gallagher and staff agree the entire neighborhood needs to be part of the decision to move forward with the project."
The Board meets in the Visions meeting room of the Northwood Presbyterian Church at 6:30 pm on the Wednesday of every other month (except for November and December).
