Bayside, CA residents request for Humboldt County to partner with city of Arcata - to install traffic calming devices

We, the undersigned, are concerned residents of Bayside and the Jacoby Creek Valley, 
Humboldt County, who are requesting the County of Humboldt and the City of Arcata to work together to address motorist speeding and safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists on Old Arcata Road. 

We want County and City government officials to cooperate with us to improve safety. At places where Old Arcata Road is most often crossed by pedestrians (especially school children), we want the County to paint 'piano bar' stripes and neon pointer signs; we want solid double lines painted where motorists are passing unsafely on the road; and we want an electronic sign that indicates MPH installed at points along the Road where motorists most frequently speed up. 

We respectfully request a meeting with County officials as soon as possible to discuss other actions the County can take to control motorist speeding and improve safety on Old Arcata Road.

Please visit us at - you may find a hard copy of the petition to print on our home page, as well.

Signing with true full names would be very helpful in our cause, and Bayside residents are very thankful for all of your signatures, and support!
