Update from December 3, 2019: A final reading of the ordinance took place at the December 2 Village Board meeting and did not receive enough votes to pass. As such, the stop signs will remain in place.
The Village of Deerfield recently reviewed all regulatory signage throughout the Village. As part of the Village Board’s review, the need for the Pine Street stop signs at Anthony Lane was discussed. The Village Board directed staff and a professional consultant to perform a stop sign warrant study and review the traffic and pedestrian counts, with respect to the current standards of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. The report indicated that the stop signs on Pine Street are not warranted by the pedestrian or vehicle traffic volumes measured in September of this year. The full report can be found here. At the October 7, 2019, meeting, the Trustees accepted the report and directed staff to reach out to residents in the area to solicit feedback.
This matter was reviewed by the Board at the November 18 meeting and will be revisited for a final reading of the ordinance is taking place at the December 2 Village Board meeting at 7:30 p.m. at Village Hall, 850 Waukegan Road. Residents are encouraged to attend and share their opinions. Residents can also contact the Mayor and Board via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Matters such as this go through a process that includes discussion and public comment at multiple public meetings before a final vote is taken.
