The goal of this petition is to gather electronic signatures from local residents (those residing on Columbia Drive, Katie Kerr Dr, Kirk Rd, Conway Rd, Thomas Rd, Carter Rd and N. Carter Rd, Russell Dr., Walker Dr., and within the Forrest Hills and Midway Woods neighborhoods in general) and for said electronic signatures on this petition to be submitted as a formal request on behalf of resident signators to the City of Decatur Planning Commission to require the developer(s) of South Decatur Village to provide space for and/or install a northerly direction right hand turn lane on South Columbia Drive, where South Columbia Drive intersects Katie Kerr Drive on the east side of South Columbia Drive, as part of developer(s) master plan for South Decatur Village, and for said turn lane to be contiguous with the entire length of the western line of the South Decatur Village development, running thus along the eastern side of South Columbia Drive so as to provide for better traffic control and traffic flow of vehicles turning right from South Columbia Drive onto Katie Kerr Drive.
Developer(s) have stated they are "advocating for a left hand turn lane heading south on South Columbia." That would be great! But the northern turn lane from South Columbia onto Katie Kerr would be more helpful on balance due to significant morning traffic coming from the direction of Memorial Drive and the impact of that right turning traffic onto Katie Kerr.
This petition also requests no on street parking on South Columbia as is currently proposed by the developer(s).
It is NOT the goal of this petition to prevent or delay the South Decatur Village project in any way, nor to negatively impact the developer(s) of the project in any way. Nor is it not the intent of the originator(s) nor signators of this petition to negatively financially impact the developers of South Decatur Village. Developer(s) should be able to amend their master plan verbally at the July 12, 2016 Planning Commission meeting, and will be able to proceed without delay to final approval and construction as planned.
