Some key points from the meeting:
- Good news is that the Washington County Traffic engineers heard us and: NO LONGER a Weir WEST road to 175th
- In Kim’s notes, the engineer makes the statement that 170th is not overburdened – but 175th is.
- Roughly 50+ people were in attendance
- Save175th is getting wonderful support from CPO6. For example, CPO6 had 3 members of their Steering Committee at the Kemmer Ridge Meeting including Chair, Lyles Garcia, and our great mentor, Ray Eck.
It's certainly frustrating to see the top of the mountain getting developed – but this plot was R-6 in 1983 and has been sitting idle for as long as we could hope for. The 650+ trips from those homes will be diverted towards Weir … I realize that they’ll probably loop back around to the 4-way stop, but that’s going to put more pressure on Wash Co to fix the intersection, and with $300K coming in from those homes, maybe they’ll put in a signal or something (‘cause the engineer says there’s not enough physical space to put in a Roundabout – and Sam said you could hear ALL 50 people GROAN when the word Roundabout was mentioned!).
Hope this helps keep you all informed,
