  3. Colgate Traffic Calming
    The Council voted by consensus to appeal the Traffic Safety Advisory Committee's decision to support City staff's recommendation to not allow undulations on Colgate.  DMNC members also voted to send a letter to the Valley Oak Elementary principal and PTA and request their help in improving drop off and pick up on Colgate.  Finally, the members voted to send a letter to the City police chief to request assistance in reducing speeding and double parking on the street especially during drop off and pick up hours.  Sue Sawyer will draft these letters. Kevin will edit them and send them on behalf of the Council.
