V.              BUSINESS

1.  WILL DODGE WAY TRAFFIC REVIEW

Sommer requested clarification on this meeting’s purpose.  Faught explained that it was to determine the pros and cons of a one-way versus two-way alley.  The alley was made one-way by resolution.  Any changes to the traffic direction would require Council approval.  Discussion focused on the low volume of traffic counts, and the upcoming Transportation System Plan update.  Faught said that this alley would be included in the study which would allow for public input.  He suggested waiting for study results prior to making any changes to the alley.

 

Burnham moves to enforce Resolution #90-51, section 1 and 2, and added that it should also include proper signage.  He further moves that evaluation of the alley should be added to the TSP.  Sommer seconds, motion passed.

 

2.  INTERSECTIONS OF UNION STREET THAT CROSS ALLISON AND FAIRVIEW

Traffic counts dropped substantially after the improvements to Siskiyou Blvd.  There have not been any further accidents since the one in February of 2005, which initiated the first investigation by the Traffic Safety Commission back in August of 2005.  Faught recommends that the prior decision by the Traffic Safety Commission be upheld. He will ask staff to check for any vegetation growth that might interfere with vision clearance.

 

Burnham moves not to add traffic control devices, Sommer seconds, and motion passes.
