A Fairway task force exploring speed limits and traffic on residential streets has already put some ideas into play on a trial basis.
Fairway Councilor Tony Liu is one of the co-chairs for the Glenfield Task Force and is helping facilitate discussions that include a second open public forum at 7 p.m. Sept. 6 at city hall. Liu says the two task force members, appointed by the mayor, are charged with exploring traffic-calming approaches, including speed limits.
The task force has already resulted in a trial for a new stop sign and warning sign about children playing. The initial discussion focused on Glenfield Drive and was initiated by Glenfield residents, but could expand to recommendations for Reinhardt Estates or the rest of the city, Liu said. Everyone is welcome at the public forum. Speed limits in Reinhardt are currently 25 mph, but the task force is exploring the option of a 20 mph limit. Collecting data and public input, weighing the pros and cons of the proposals and then making a recommendation are the tasks the group is to complete. City Councilor Jeff Armstrong is the other co-chair facilitating the discussion.
