For the Safety of Our Children, Close Littleworth Lane at the Sea Cliff Elementary School

This petition had 434 supporters

The children of Sea Cliff, NY are currently in danger due to the intermittent closure of Littleworth Lane between their elementary school and its two playgrounds.

This short section of Littleworth Lane is currently closed on school days between the hours of 7am and 7 pm in order to protect the safety of our children while they travel back and forth between the school building and the playgrounds. During these hours, our elementary school-age children are accustomed to crossing this street without the fear of oncoming traffic. It is a safe area during the school day, from September through June.

The area around the blacktop and two playgrounds separated by Littleworth Lane is also continually used by Sea Cliff's children on weekends, holidays and during the summer, when school is not in session. While parents are exerting their best effort to teach children that there is danger when crossing the street, and that they must stop and look both ways, our children are still conditioned to feel protected in and around their school and play areas.

For the safety of Sea Cliff's children, and to eliminate potential liability to the Village of Sea Cliff, we respectfully request that the Mayor of Sea Cliff and Board of Trustees redesign Littleworth Lane in such a way that it is permanently closed to vehicular traffic between Carpenter Avenue and Hansen Place.
