Don't Allow Development Across from Brady Elementary School
As concerned residents of the mid-town neighborhoods of Little Rock, we oppose the development of 18 housing units directly across the street from Brady Elementary School on West Markham Street.
This is already a high traffic area with apartment buildings and a car wash near by that creates much congestion. Adding this many more families with cars will increase the danger that is already there for children and motorists. It is a highly trafficked artery for downtown traffic and there is no traffic signal or turn lanes there.
With a school directly across the street and no turn lanes this area will be extremely chaotic in rush hour traffic.
There is also concern that emergency vehicles will be challenged with getting through the congestion this will create.
We respectfully ask the board to not approve this development. If this is not acceptable, we ask that further traffic studies be done to determine the impact this development will have on the area.
