Suggestions/Requests > SPEED BUMPS or CLOSED STREETS

Too many cars speeding down our streets from Central. (AND ALLEYS)

Now that the fire station is closed (which is a shame) can speed bumps or CLOSED TO THROUGH TRAFFIC signs be put up. This has increased with more businesses along Central.

I certainly agree that the traffic has increased as well as their speed. At the very least, I would like to see both intersections - High & Gold and Walter & Gold turned into 4-way or All-way stops. These 2 intersections are both just waiting for an accident to happen, which has already occurred.

Another concerrn is the increasing number of large trucks going through the neighborhood. I'm not talking about the mid-sized delivery trucks but the semi's now frequenting the neighborhood. Depending on the size and weight of the truck, I many times feel the vibration in my home and that certainly can't be good either for the foundations or structures of our historic homes.
