700 Block of Chapel 2 way street and 30mph?!
I was just informed that the road in front of the old Jr High/grade school, is now becomming a 2 way street, since the schools are fully moved. This decision was done by Mr Jeff Dingman and it is effective immediately.
I would like to point out, has the city put any signs up notifying anyone that it is a 2 way street? No.. sounds like a lovely lawsuit could happen if an accident were to happen.
2nd of all, there is STILL A SCHOOL there. Rainbow Preschool. Many of those young kids do not know to look right and left all the time yet and having it now a 2 way street puts kids even more at a safety risk. For as long as I can remember that strip of Chapel has been one way only. For the flow of traffic for schools, and for the safety of the students and faculty.
Everyday when I go to pick up my son from his classes at the preschool, there is always some one, not paying attention driving faster than they should going the one way allowed, and that alone is a safety issue. Why add it 2 ways, and make it worse?
I urge everyone to please express your displeasure with the way that this is being handled. For the safety of our fellow people in Baldwin, especially our little ones.
