Following a Special Meeting of the Traffic Committee on March 7, the traffic diverter located on the intersection of Cliffwood Ave and St College Blvd, will be removed once the collection of traffic data has concluded and a working group will be formed.
On March 7, during a Special Meeting focusing on the traffic diverter located at the intersection of Cliffwood Ave and St College Blvd, the Traffic Committee decided to gather additional traffic data, remove the diverter and form a working group. The decision came after a presentation from staff and hearing over 20 residents speak for and against the traffic diverter. The presentation given at the meeting is available to view. The diverter will be removed in approximately two weeks to allow for the collection of complete traffic data. The traffic diverter located on Cashew Ave and Lambert Rd will remain in place as scheduled.
The Traffic Committee also decided to establish a working group to come up with a more comprehensive solution for the area. Residents of the surrounding Cliffwood neighborhood, who are interested in being part of the working group, can fill out an online interest list or email Public Works Deputy Director/City Engineer Michael Ho. Depending on the number of interested residents, there may be a random drawing to select members for the committee. The intent is to keep the size of the committee manageable and balanced with residents from both sides of Cliffwood Ave. The deadline to fill out the interest list, or send an email is March 31, 2019. It is anticipated that the committee will be formed by the end of April 2019.
