Parkside Problems

Residents walking the streets at Parkside Avenue came together last week, raising concerns about road safety. Parkside neighbors complain the avenue runs more like a highway than a residential road.

"It's chaotic. It's fast-moving, multiple vehicles rushing from Route 198," said Prish Moran, owner of Sweetness 7 Cafe.

At 6:30 P.M., Parkside community members can join forces to voice their opinions once again and figure out a solution to street safety on this four lane road. Happening at St. Mary's School for the Deaf, the Parkside Community Association will hold a neighborhood traffic study. At the meeting, they hope to take a look into the existing conditions, take on new project objectives, punch on problem areas and figure out alternative ideas for improvement.

Some community members have already come forward with suggestions.

"It's engineering right now. Bring it down to two lanes for a very simple way to calm the traffic because we have four lanes flying," Moran said.

Plus, the city already installed information radar speed limit signs to make drivers aware of how fast they're flying and providing a constant reminder to slow down.
