IV. Committee Reports
Traffic — Jon/Greg
The petitions for the Do Not Enter Signs are being reviewed by the City. The City changed the requirements for condo or apartment complexes which required getting additional signatures. 96 were needed and Greg obtained 120. It is believed that there are 73% confirmed signatures. A traffic study will be performed before the signs are installed. Installation is expected late January 2006. A post-installation traffic study will also be performed. The City will send a newsletter to residents explaining all of this.
