Traffic volume & speed in the Willows

I live at the corner of Baywood & Woodland in the Willows. I work from home
and my office window looks out at that corner.

After the signs indicating "no thru traffic" were placed at the corner, I
did see a slight decrease in traffic, but the speeds that are being driven
down both Woodland and Baywood are still generally too fast for the
neighborhood and there is still a high volume of cut-through traffic
through the neighborhood during commute hours.

There is a lot of pedestrian and bike traffic crossing Middlefield from
Woodland to Palo Alto Ave. and because of the traffic, speeds and corner
configuration, I'm surprised we haven't already had a serious accident at
that spot.

We understand that the speed and traffic problems in the Willows are
complicated and have been getting worse over the years as the traffic
volume from the area's businesses expand, but it is past time to address
the problems in the Willows and along Willow Ave. We've seen emergency
services held up by gridlocked traffic during commute hours which is
extremely concerning.

Traffic issues in the Willows need addressed NOW.

Thanks for your attention,
Lauri Hart
111 Baywood Ave.
