Keep Security Fence between MTA Lot and our Neighborhood
The stream restoration project is scheduled to finish in the next 2 weeks. As part of their restoration they are tearing down the 6ft Chain Link security fence to put up a 4ft pressure treated pine fence between the neighborhood and the light rail. A section of the fence has already been put in our backyard and we have noticed an uptick in traffic through our yard in route to York Road. The plan is to tear down the rest of the fence and replace it with a more vulnerable fence that would require more maintenance, is not a deterrent to unwanted cut through traffic, and is not a barrier to parking lot tail gate waste, etc, to the stream.
The fence is being but up as a result of "community feedback". However the immediate neighbors and those most impacted are not in favor of this fence. If you would like to see a more secure deterrent be put up we need your help!
We understand the greater good of this project, but we would also like to keep our neighborhood from being vulnerable to more traffic through our yards. Please sign this petition to show your desire to secure our neighborhood.
