Willows traffic management plan

To the members of the Menlo Park City Council:

Concerning item H1 on the 9/11/2018 City Council Regular Agenda Meeting:

If the council deems it necessary to approve the proposed traffic
management plan for the Willows, I am in support of the modified plan,
in which there is a yield sign placed at the intersection of Baywood
Avenue and Blackburn Avenue, and with no speed humps on Baywood Avenue
or Cover Lane. These three items differ from the original plan.

With the somewhat recent placement of traffic diversion signs in the
southern and northern parts of the Willows, it is clear from general
observation and from city statistics that traffic has reduced in numbers
and average speeds. This suggests the traffic diversion efforts have
solved the problem of commuting cut-throughs and overwhelming traffic in
the neighborhoods.

Also, a recent petition from Baywood Avenue residents indicates the
desire of most those residents to have no speed hump on Baywood Avenue.

I feel the traffic diversion have solved much of the problem of
overwhelming traffic and that the yield sign at Baywood/Blackburn will
sufficiently slow traffic as it enters Blackburn/Marmona/McKendry.

Thanks for your attention to this matter,

Peter Whidden
150 Baywood Ave.
