As of last week, the CB/NB Waterboard has diverted traffic from the TWO-WAY 10th street onto our ONE-LANE, narrow, ALL RESIDENTIAL street without providing flaggers, radar machines, reduced speed signs, speed bumps or any other speeding deterrent. We have gone before the CB City Council Tuesday evening and have yet to see any progress towards saftey. All CB students get out of school next week and the City and Police are telling us to keep them inside and away from the street. They are admitting that the situation is dangerous, misguided and was not thought-through at all. There was no public hearing or optional routes presented to the neighbors. This cannot go on for TWO MONTHS as projected as the kids must be able to use the new skatepark and park and many kids use our street to get to those places. The recreational integrity of our street has been compromised and must be remedied as soon as possible. Please Help Us by calling the City of Coos Bay and the Coos Bay Police Department at 269-8914 before something happens and they finally pay attention to the danger they are allowing to continue.
