Letter to the editor: Neighborhood thankful for traffic-calming measures

Thanks, and gratitude to our Town’s Officials on behalf of the Greater Buttolph Neighborhood, many of whom have been working for years to ensure the safety of our school children walking and biking to our 3 schools, which are all linked by our neighborhood, as well as the many pedestrians and cyclists using our streets. We are grateful to the Safety Committee who recently unanimously endorsed some of the traffic calming measures that we asked for. 

The Police Department, the Department of Public Works, the selectboard and the Infrastructure Committee as well as the Bike Ped Committee have all worked with us to attempt to calm the traffic that makes it dangerous to walk, bike and even cross the street to mailboxes. (A recent Police traffic study showed 57,000 plus vehicles traveling on Rogers Rd. and through Buttolph Acres in one month!)

Our neighborhood looks forward to the continued collaboration to make our section of town a safer place to be.
