Amy Crawford started this petition to New York State Department of Transportation and Town of Hamden

Please help us lower the speed limit in the beautiful town of Hamden, New York located along the West Branch of the Delaware River in the Catskills. Our historic town needs the speed reduced and the crosswalks added to make the town and its residents safer. Additionally, we believe it will make it more enjoyable of a community to visit and reside. 

The town of Hamden is situated along the very busy NY Route 10. However, even in the town limits where residents and visitors need to access the post office, the bank, and our historic covered bridge, the speed limit is currently set at 40 MPH.  

The community is also home to two daycares, an active church with a blessing box frequented by many in need, and two new businesses are set to open this spring.

It is dangerous for all to have the speed limit remain at 40 MPH and have no crosswalks that allow for  pedestrians to cross this busy road safely. It is essential that the speed limit be reduced and the crosswalks added while in the town limits to encourage those in town to safely access what the town has to offer and take advantage of the walkability of the community with the existing sidewalks already in place.

If ever there was a time and a place to slow down, it’s in Hamden. Join us.
