The Board is grateful to Echo Hill North resident, Elizabeth Lingo, for bringing the issue of speeding and pedestrian safety to the forefront of the Board’s agenda items for this year. She has put in many hours already researching best practices and ensuring headway in the process of making our neighborhood safer for all. (Notice the speed monitor on Heatherstone Road…)
The Board has recently sent a letter drafted by Elizabeth Lingo to the Amherst Select Board requesting traffic surveys. Once we have the results, we will ask the Department of Public Works to make changes to address the problem. These could take the form of new signage, painted bike lanes, median islands or speed bumps. We will also begin the complicated process of lowering the speed limit.
Stay tuned and many thanks Elizabeth.
