Thanks to the efforts of Chris Ochterbeck, SNC-14 President, 3-hour limited parking signs for Jaycee Park were installed by the City in September, helping to ensure available parking for park users. Vehicles of shift workers from a business located on Seamist were parking in front of Jaycee Park for 8 hours or more and those wishing to use the park were having trouble finding a parking space.
A COH traffic study for Timbergrove and Holly Park is ongoing. At the August meeting, the SNC-14 voted to request an additional, updated traffic plan for Ella Blvd. and streets around Sinclair Elementary School, goal being to address speeding and texting in a school zone. At the October meeting, the SNC-14 voted to request a traffic study for W. 11th Street, particularly the area between Shirkmere and Shelterwood.
