Petition Urging Stop Signs on Central Ave. in the Willows

Good Evening,

We are among a wide group of neighbors who live in the Willows near Central Ave. and are deeply frustrated about the growing traffic safety problem at the intersections of Central Ave./Elm St. and Central Ave./Walnut St. On June 16, a woman on a bicycle was hit by a car at the intersection of Central and Elm. A few weeks earlier, on May 7, a young girl on a bicycle was hit by a car as she was crossing Central Ave. at Walnut St. on her way to school at Willow Oaks. There are near-accidents at these intersections on an almost daily basis. The widely expressed concern has been that it is not a matter of if an accident will end in tragedy, but when.

Attached is a petition signed by a majority of neighbors (over 75 total) close to these two intersections urging the City to take immediate action and install stop signs. We have also attached a coded map so you can see the homes represented by the signatures. This is not a time for extended monitoring and studying. It needs to be resolved now and we urge you to make that happen. Thank you for your prompt attention and consideration.
