20 mph

Jackson Town Council decided Monday night to seek an ordinance to post slower speeds on those streets that traverse the hillside south of town between Flat Creek and Cache Streets.  Mayor Mark Barron explains that the decision comes in response to concerns raised byconcerned residents there. Barron says these are strictly residential neighborhoods with steeper terrain and very narrow streets; and sometimes that 25-mile-an-hour speed limit seems more like 30 to 35 miles-an-hour when you are behind the wheel there.  Barron says the town has had several requests for and the council has asked Police Chief Smith to look at the entire Snow King, Aspen Drive – Pine Drive neighborhood to reduce the speed from 25 to 20 miles-an- hour. Additionally, Barron says the narrow streets have cars parked along them and visibility is often limited, and slowing the speed down is hoped to create a safer environment for the children living along those streets.
