I sent this comment via email, and then found this comment form. This is the same comment as my 1/6/23 email to the governance email address.
I am supportive of the changes proposed by the task force so far. I wanted to follow-up on the reading of the ordinances at the last Town Meeting. For Ordinance 1&2, the recommendations include repealing Ordinances 1 & 2 and adopting a 20 mph speed limit. I believe the first reading only included the repeal part of the recommendation. Is there a plan to draft a speed limit ordinance or will that need to be handled separately? Do we know if a motion passed by Town Assembly would be sufficient to set a 20 mph speed limit or is an ordinance required to establish a lower speed limit than the state law default limit in residential areas? I’m wondering if a committee would be responsible for picking up this recommendation, and if that would best go to Civic, Community Planning or Safety.

Pam, I believe that the plan is to repeal all of Ordinances 1 and 2 and then create a new ordinance governing the speed limit on roads within Arden. I am unsure of the process that would be required to do this. John Scheflen can probably provide more detail.
