Stop Signs Need More Discussion

February 23, 2012 Town of Jackson No Comments
Snow King stop signs

Jackson Town Council during a meeting this week postponed the vote to remove stop signs on Snow King Avenue.

To improve traffic flow on Snow King Avenue, Town Council has been mulling over the idea of removing some of the stop signs along a street that sees heavy vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle traffic. But so far, the proposal has been met with public disapproval. Several community members spoke up against the proposal during a town council meeting Tuesday when the council was slated to vote on the matter.

So the council voted to hold a public workshop on the item in order to gather more community feedback before voting.

Councilman Greg Miles said the public’s wishes will ultimately shape this decision.

“At the end of the day I think the town council’s position is that if there is overwhelming support to not remove the signs we’re certainly not going to pursue that path,” Miles said. “I think you’ll see the town council probably put it on the back burner for a while and maybe look for a different approach.”

A public workshop to discuss removing stop signs on Snow King Avenue is slated for sometime in April. – Robyn Vincent
