At its last meeting, the Safety Committee discussed the idea of putting Pedestrian Crossing Signs in additional intersections around town. The perception of the Committee is that the presence of these signs both alerts drivers to the fact that a crosswalk is there and generally results in slowing drivers down. Both of these make Chagrin Falls more pedestrian friendly and safe.
In the next couple of weeks, our Superintendent of Streets, Rob Jamieson, and Council President Karl Maersch are going to be looking at some potential locations for these additional signs. If you have ideas on intersections or crosswalks that you think would be a good candidate, please contact us.
