Increase safety for Newark's Bayside TOD
The city of Newark, CA marketed the "Bayside Transit Oriented Development (TOD)" formerly known as "The Dumbarton Transit-Oriented Development (TOD)", as a proposed neighborhood that will provide a broad range of new housing, retail and business opportunities in Western Newark.
Over the last 3 years, 600+ new residents have moved into the Bayshores, Glassbay, Lighthouse and the Bridgeway developments believing the city's vision.
Speeding trucks and cars have already caused accidents in the neighborhood.
Before a fatal accident, the residents of these communities petition the City of Newark, CA to fulfill their marketed promise to the residents and increase safety measures throughout the Newark Bayside TOD.
1) Install necessary signage (on Willow and Central Ave) for bypass trucks to avoid the residential neighborhood
Trucks that use Newark as a bypass in order to skip traffic on 880 or as a cut off to 84, to avoid this residential neighborhood.
2) Instruct FedEx trucks going to 8333 Central Ave to avoid Willow St
Speeding FedEx trucks going to Cabot Ct have already caused 2 accidents.
The city should instruct FedEx trucks to get to 8333 Central Ave via Central Ave.
3) Install MUTCD compliant Rectangular Rapid-Flashing Beacons on Willow St crossing at Seawind Way
Pedestrians: bicyclists, families and seniors crossing Willow St at Seawind Way encounter speeding cars coming from Central Ave or Enterprise Drive.
By installing Rapid-Flashing beacons, pedestrians can ensure speeding motorists can see the crosswalk day or night.
As the city has decided that the roundabouts are here to stay in this neighborhood, the residents request the city to increase safety measures in this neighborhood.
