Petition seeks to close portion of Stumer Rd just days after it was re-opened

Posted:
     Just days after opening, a new petition is seeking to close a portion of Stumer Road once again.
    Safety concerns from people who live in the area are the driving force behind a petition drive to persuade the City Council to overturn its decision.
    The council voted May 5th to remove barriers placed at Stumer and Enchantment Road.
    That removal opens Stumer road up to residential traffic toward the new Wal–Mart. With such close vote, Public Works Director Terry Woltersdorff says he's not surprised that some in the neighborhood are asking the council to reconsider, "Strictly from a planning and traffic standpoint, it's makes the most sense to have the intersection open. From an emergency response time it makes sense to have it open. Unless the city council directs us to put the barriers back up, we'll continue to leave it open”.
    The petition will be presented May 13th to the public works committee with the hope of bringing the issue before the full council.
