Patricia Stoltz started this petition to City of Midland Traffic Operations

Proposal: Decrease traffic within Grandview Neighborhood with the addition of four-way stops around Fasken Park and revisions in stop sign locations or speed inhibitors, such as stop signs or speed bumps, at surrounding intersections.
 
Background: Due to its appealing local park, central location, desirable schools, and alluring churches, Grandview Neighborhood attracts traffic. Residents, both long-term homeowners and new family homeowners, and neighborhood visitors have expressed concern regarding the lack of attention to current stop signs and excessive speed. At any time during the day, you can find pedestrians walking dogs or pushing strollers. Unfortunately, despite the neighborhood activity, drivers continue to cut-through from Wadley or Neely to Golf Course or cut-through from Midkiff to Garfield. As noted in the city road bond, we are about to enter year 3 that includes improvements to Garfield, followed by year 4/5 that includes improvements to Sinclair. While we, the residents or visitors of Grandview Neighborhood, all respect the need for improvements, we fear that this will intensify traffic. Despite animals being hit at intersections and near misses of T-bone motor vehicle accidents involving children, local officials have yet to make changes to current traffic conditions. 
 
Description (see picture above): Option one proposes four-way stops at intersections labeled with a purple or blue stop sign, totaling 32 new stop signs. Option two proposes four-way stops at four-way intersections around the park and on Huntington; reverse of stop sign placement from EW to NS at 4 intersections on Lanham and Mogford; and speed humps on Sparks. This totals 8 new stop signs, 4 revisions, and 2 speed humps. These changes will inhibit speed approximately every two blocks.
 
With the nearing improvements proposed in the road bond, we ask that you give considerable thought and prioritize this request before we move from an accident with a pet to one that involves an individual. Please contact me with questions.
 
Thank you for your consideration!
