To whom it may concern:

As residents with homes on, or surrounding, Darling and Rovilla Roads, we are very concerned about the results of the recent speed study, causing the posted speed limits to increase.

  • All of the included petitioners travel these roads daily and will testify to the many children, pedestrians, and bicyclists that use these throughways, causing a significant safety concern of those traveling at unsafe county-approved speeds, for the current design of these roads.
    • Details causing the concerns and need for a speed reevaluation:
      1. Darling and Rovilla roads are very narrow, in some places each lane is only 6 feet wide, with virtually no berm or sidewalks.
      2. There is a 90-degree turn on Darling Road and a series of blind hills.
      3. There is a 25 mph development bisected by Darling Road.
      4. Hannah Park entrance is off of Darling Road.

As highly concerned residents, we are asking for a reevaluation with a larger weight placed on the high-risk attributes listed above of these two frequently traveled roads.

We request that the 25mph signs remain in place and the speed study be modified to account for pedestrian and bicycle traffic, as well as be more sensitive to visible obstructions and road width.

Please help us prevent a severe injury or a tragedy from occurring.

We look forward to hearing back this Spring with the next steps.
