The Association’s newly re-formed Traffic and Safety Committee held an organizational meeting on December 3, 2019. Dave Dalpe, a member of the River Hill Board of Directors, is the committee Chair.
At the meeting, Tony Miceli, the former committee Chair and current Board Chair, provided history on issues, committee achievements, and recent transportation projects in the Clarksville/River Hill area.
Attendees identified issues to focus on including the prevalence of speeding on neighborhood streets, noise from MD 32, and traffic volumes and safety issues on MD 108. The committee will meet next on February 13 at 7 p.m. at Claret Hall.
The committee needs your help:
The Traffic & Safety Committee is seeking residents with expertise in sound engineering to join the committee to assist with or advise on assessing traffic noise levels along MD 32. This has become a significant concern for residents who live along MD. 32. On behalf of residents who have expressed concerns, the association plans to re-visit the noise issues with the State Highway Administration and our elected representatives.
Neighbors: Please remember to observe and follow posted speed limits when driving on Village streets, particularly those in residential areas. Incidents of speeding on residential streets have been observed with increasing frequency. This puts pedestrians, bikers and other drivers in significant danger. Please consider the safety of your fellow residents and drive slowly. Speed was likely a contributing factor for accidents that happened in December on Fall Moon Ride and Great Star Drive
