Sign Petition

Support for School Zone Designation on Burke Centre Parkway

217 Signatures Goal: 250

We, as parents of school-aged children and/or those who work and live in Burke Centre, support passage of House Bill 1879 (Senate Bill 768), which would allow Burke Centre to designate the portion of Burke Centre Parkway (BCP) in front of Terra Centre Elementary (TCE) School as a school zone.

We believe that there is insufficient signage on BCP to notify drivers that there is an elementary school on the parkway. We feel unsafe walking along BCP in front of the school, where traffic speeds regularly exceed the posted 40 mph limit. We are concerned with the increasing volume and speed of traffic along BCP and feel that Burke Centre is in danger of losing its identity as a residential and walking-friendly community.

We support passage of this bill to achieve the following results:

  • To slow down traffic in front of TCE.
  • To raise awareness and promote safer access to school grounds.  
  • To maintain and enhance Burke Centre's walkability.  

We urge immediate passage of the bill.
