I admit to being a force behind the revision at Meadow Road. Living right at the intersection I became acutely aware not just of how ugly and void of greenery it was, but also just how dangerous and poorly designed the old intersection was…
Due to very high speeds from a downhill sloping free right turn onto northbound Meadow Road, my kid’s and my neighbor’s life were literally at risk every time they tried to exit the driveway.
The new road revision was approved and drafted by professionally educated traffic engineers and reviewed by citizens on the Transportation Advisory Committee.
We have since landscaped and planted trees in the area to green and beautify the neighborhood and recently added an environmentally friendly rain garden to help remove pollutants from the storm water runoff and help recharge the aquifer.
I’m quite pleased to “masterminded” the efforts that resulted in reduced speeds and improved local safety that helped to protect the kids, while at the same time helping to green and improve the neighborhood, the environment and surface water quality.
