City not fast to act on speed limit
Will continue discussing Old Stage Road change
City officials discussed the Old Stage Road speed limit again Tuesday, but a decision has not yet been made on whether to keep it 25 mph or change it back to 35 mph.
The city council voted at its June 4 meeting to change the speed limit from 35 to 25. The request was initiated by Hatcher's Woods resident Harry Benner, who was concerned with the safety of pedestrians.
But during a ensuing Street and Alley Committee meeting, Hatcher's Woods resident Dave Hextell told the committee he felt the majority of the neighborhood did not want the reduction in the speed limit. He submitted a petition with 39 signatures wanting the speed at 35 mph.
