Community Council looking for good "flag station" intersections

June 22nd, 2011 · No Comments

The Wallingford Community Council is looking into placing crossing flags at several key intersections in Wallingford.

The question is: Which intersections would the flags be most useful?

The vice-president of the council, Jon deLeeuw, sent these ideas:
3-4 stations along 50th
2-3 stations along 45th
4-5 stations along 40th (which already has 2-3 neighbor maintained stations)
4-5 stations along Stone Way

Each station would start with 2 buckets and 6 flags. Extra flags would be available at the Neighborhood Office. While many intersections could benefit from the flags, the council only has $300 for purchase and maintenance. The initial setup cost for each station is estimated at $17.

deLeeuw will give a more detailed presentation at the July 6th WCC meeting with the feedback he receives. “The more votes an intersection gets the more chance it will get a station,” he writes.
