NEWS--Speed Limits Painted on Whittington Avenue

Employees in the City's Traffic Department continue to implement our traffic control solution for the roadway around Whittington Federal Park. "25 MPH" speed limits have been painted on the roadway at both ends of the Federal Park (one set at the west end of Whittington Avenue in front of the Family Church and another in front of Small Group Work Therapy).

City crews also painted the speed limit on the divided roadway around the Federal Park in four additional spots--which we did not ask for. As per a request by Association member Verna Linder, the City placed a "stop sign ahead" as a warning to drivers eastbound on Whittington Avenue as they approach the Alligator Farm. Finally, our Treasurer, Darthy Tyrity, has spoken to Assistant City Manager Steve Mallett about all the City vehicles that have been ignoring the new stop sign. Mallett told Darthy that he would inform City crews that the stop signs were meant for them too.
