Masonic Ave neighbors support speed reduction

25 MPH hearing notice
Originally uploaded by Dale331
Notices were posted earlier this month to alert the community about a proposed change to the speed limit on Masonic Avenue between Geary and Oak. At the April 18 public hearing, neighbors came out to support the change, and it was approved.

We're hoping for a quick final approval, and effective implementation. Changing to 25 mph is not a huge difference from the current speed limit of 30 mph. There are only a few speed limit signs, though, and many cars travel way over that speed limit, leading to many crashes and injuries, and a bad community environment.

So far, I've found speed limit signs at Fulton (southbound) and approaching Geary (northbound).
