LISD to continue bus service for Bella Vista

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

We are requesting that LISD continue bus service for the subdivision Bella Vista.

We feel the bus service should continue for the following reasons:

1. The intersection at Anderson Mill and Dies Ranch Road is unsafe due to:

-High traffic volume, Dies Ranch Road is frequently used to access FM 2769, Anderson Mill Road , the gas station and the Dies Ranch Storage Facility

-Presence of non-residential driveways within close proximity of the intersection (gas station entrance/exit and Dies Ranch Storage Facility )

-Dedicated right turn lanes that increases traffic volume of Dies Ranch Road and decreases safe crosswalk time

-Poor visibility of pedestrians due to gas station entrance/exit and dedicated right turn lane

-Poor visibility and design of intersection due to curvature of Dies Ranch Road

-High percentage of residents under age 18 living within close proximity of the  intersection (inexperienced drivers)

2. LISD requires bus services for areas > 2 miles from the school. Areas of Bella Vista meet that requirement.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
