Please come and share your thoughts.
The traffic meeting is Wednesday April 10 from 7-9 pm at Parkmead Elementary School.
Contra Costa County, specifically our new Supervisor, Candace Andersen, has engaged us to hold a community meeting regarding traffic safety issues in the Parkmead area. Representatives from the County and City traffic engineering departments will be present as well as representatives from the California Highway Patrol (responsible for County traffic issues) and the Walnut Creek Police.
Some of the issues raised by neighbors include:
-Cars speeding and not stopping at stop signs
-Concern for Parkmead children walking to and from the school on the Newell pathway as well as along Lilac
-Bicyclists not stopping at stop signs
-Residents being blocked into their driveways due to traffic congestion
-Cut through traffic from downtown (Kaiser, Rossmoor)
More details and a reminder will be posted here as the meeting gets closer. The Parkmead Community Association will also send email to those on its list and keep our website www.parkmead.org and Facebook current. This is a unique opportunity to learn about County and City programs and to ask questions, make suggestions and express opinions.
Mark your calendars and please plan to attend.
