Tonight’s NCPCA Meeting: Pedestrian Safety, JPI West and Greenbelt Sector Plan

NCPCA - It's Your Neighborhood Association

Today is the second Thursday of the month and thus is the day for our January NCPCA meeting.

We have been discussing the possibility of having Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB) at various locations on Rhode Island avenue as a way to improve pedestrian safety on Rhode Island Avenue. The City allocated around $45K for pedestrian safety improvement on Rhode Island avenue.

Based on our City engineer’s initial research, we think RRFB from Spot Devices a good candidate for this project. Sandi Dunmyer from Spot Devices will attend the NCPCA meeting tonight and talk about these devices. She will need about 45 minutes for her presentation.
The choice of materials could have a big impact on safety to Duvall Field and other destinations. Please come and let us knowthis be what locations the City should select.

A new developer for the JPI West development on Route 1will make a presentation on concepts for this development will be and seek your comments. NCPCA had major input in the previous design, but nothing was built. The outcome could have a big impact on Autoville and north College Park along Route 1

A few months ago, NCPCA voted unanimously to oppose the Sector Plan, and our City made several requests to Park and Planning to change it in ways that would protect our community. Now our City Council is working to prepare the final response before the County Council takes a vote to approve, amend or reject it.

As always, the meeting will take place at Davis Hall at 7:30 pm. Hope to see you all there.

    While improving pedestrian safety on Rhode Island is a good idea, how about increasing pedestrian safety measures on the east-south roads in North College Park? Hollywood/Kenesaw/Lackawanna/Muskogee are dangerous and more stop signs and speed bumps need to be implemented.
