"Positive" Early Feedback on Gaslight stop signs

GASLIGHT VILLAGE STOP SIGNS. The stop sign trial in Gaslight Village continues. The large temporary stop-signs in the center of Wealthy Street, in place since early July, were intended to get the attention of all drivers because the four-way stops were a new item. Now that the majority of drivers have seen the signs multiple times, the duplicate signs have been removed to allow the permanent stop signs on the sides of the street to control traffic.

Traffic patterns will be studied in October after the final adjustment period, and the results submitted to the Traffic Commission and City Commission for a final determination on whether to keep the signs in place.

Early feedback has been very positive with the majority of citizens approving of the stop signs. If you have not yet given your thoughts on the signs, questions or comments can be directed to City Manager Brian Donovan at bdonovan@eastgr.org.

A reminder to all students driving to school: The Department of Public Safety will be actively enforcing parking regulations in the business district. You will be issued a citation if you park in violation of our ordinances. Please respect the "no parking" areas and park safely.

If you have questions about the parking regulations, contact the Public Safety Department at 949-7010.

Start of School Traffic Concerns

From: http://www.eastgr.org

For those of you who are returning from summer vacations near or afar, some changes have taken place in our business district that may have a significant impact on your morning and afternoon driving in this area. In July, the City placed three sets of 4-way stop signs on Wealthy at the intersections of Bagley, Croswell and Lovett.

Also, the traffic signal at Wealthy and Lovett has been disabled. At this time, the changes are under study to determine if they properly handle both pedestrian and vehicle traffic flow. School traffic will be a dramatic test to the change and adjustments may be needed to accommodate the increase in traffic. Please be mindful of these changes while demonstrating patience and courtesy to fellow drivers and pedestrians.
