Quiet Zone Summer Street Crossing, Lifestyle and Safety Enhancements
We, the undersigned affix our signatures in support of the petition for a Quiet Zone for the Summer Street railroad crossing located in South Walpole, Massachusetts. We recognize that the Federal Railroad Administration will evaluate the Summer Street Crossing, prior to the Quiet Zone implementation, to ensure that the crossing would be as safe, if not safer, than with the usage of horns/whistles.
In order to provide additional safety measures for our children, this petition also includes but is not limited to the employment of a crossing guard, during school days, at the Summer Street Railroad Crossing before and after school hours of Boyden Elementary School.
We petition that these measures be implemented despite the status of the new MBTA Pilot Program to Foxboro.
Please include your full first and last name along with your address in the comments section for submittal to the Board of Selectmen.
