There are more than enough crosswalks in Chagrin. Yet every time I come out I see somebody crossing outside of those safety lanes. Perhaps it’s time to start giving out tickets so that gets on social media...Months ago I stopped to confront three runners crossing at Cuffs and all they did was just yell back at me...How many tickets of been given out in the last year?
One of the powerful elements of Safe Routes to School programs is the intentional combination of Education, Enforcement, Engineering, Encouragement and Evaluation. This article focuses on Engineering changes that can significantly impact safety. Enforcement is one element that only works when applied in concert with the others.
From Angie DeBernardo - Hello everyone! I was recently named chair of the Chagrin Falls Council Safety Committee. We will be holding our first public meeting on Monday afternoon at 1 pm. The village engineer, town administrative officer and Mayor will all also be there.
We are taking up several topics of interest to residents: the traffic light signalization at all downtown intersections, the possibility of employing a school resource officer dedicated to the school system, and how to better encourage snow shoveling on both business and resident walkways.
We would love to have resident and business opinions on any of these issues. If you can attend the meeting, please do. If you'd like to send me your comments or post them here, that would be great as well. You can send me email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 440-247-3603 (you'll get my machine).
All topics of interest to Safe Routes Chagrin. Please try to attend the meeting Monday at 1pm.
Thanks Kathryn - I'm sending an email this evening to crossing guards. Sorry for the late contact, came down with a flu bug this week and it's thrown off my schedule! I doubt this will be the last meeting on these issues though.
Interested in seeing more public paths and trails in Chagrin? There is a public meeting next Thursday, Jan . 18th at Beachwood Community Center on possible trail development in this region. Come out and let Cuyahoga Greenways know that you care! ... See MoreSee Less
