On September 8, 2009, Jon Lang and I raised a "matter from the audience" to propose a crosswalk to Horn Pond before the Winchester Board of Selectmen. We distributed the following presentation:
The Board instructed the Town Manager and Traffic Committee to review the proposal and report back at the next Board of Selectmen meeting. At that meeting, Jon, myself, and about 40 area residents plead the case for the crosswalk and other traffic calming measures. The crosswalk has subsequently been installed. The Board of Selectmen assured those in attendance that they did not consider the traffic problems on Pond Street solved with the crosswalk and that they would continue to study traffic calming measures.
