I offer the following both as notification as well as to stimulate discussion as to our efforts to manage traffic. Note that this is a very aggressive program and I am sure the proposed will be met with a full range of reactions.
From Ed Silva, Village Manager:
Council, we are contemplating a test in the area designated below for the remaining of the School year as a traffic calming initiative. Depending on the results and public input we may come back to Council and begin implementation of this half closure of certain streets Village wide. If this works, the solution would be to use landscape, curbing and allow for bicycle ingress and egress on the section that is being closed. We are doing this in conjunction with manning the signal with a Police Officer on SW 82 Ave and SW 168 Street to ensure flow through the neighborhood at rush hour.
