Residents of Forest Avenue in the Town of Mamaroneck are hoping they’ll soon see a slow down in speeding cars through their neighborhood – but they aren’t getting everything they want just yet.
After residents lobbied local officials for new speed controls, the Town Board last week agreed to install one new stop sign near Forest and Rockland Avenues.
That plan, however, falls short of the traffic committee’s proposal to install two stop signs, a plan stemming from residents’ complaints of numerous near misses with speeding cars. Residents agreed two signs were needed to reduce the severity of the problem.
The Board also rejected the traffic committee’s proposal to prohibit certain parking on Edgewood Avenue, near the firehouse. The committee asked to have the west side of the street cleared between 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM on weekdays.
The next town board meeting will be at 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 15 at the Town Center.
