The real issue in that is that Williams has been closed almost every day for weeks on end, causing ridiculous traffic backups on 9 and Cross. I've tried calling the township and just been bounced around. Construction should be forced to happen at night, it's ridiculous that 9 is backed up to 4th st every afternoon to accommodate some private construction.
The real issue is that WE keep building without adding sufficient infrastructure.(or coming up with such pathetic excuses that its a county/state road.=dont approve in the first place.)

Instead of normal streets it became ok to build multiple dead end developments.

+10000

This has been bothering me for a long time.

There are a few projects going up on prospect, another project on cross near the 9. What were/are they thinking? Why should they get approval to build in such areas?

Actually there will be a public hearing on all the changes to route 9 traffic flow in the summer, before the changes go into effect. The State will also want to see the  local elected officials on board with the proposed changes.....

It would definitely help turning from central onto 9 if there is no light from the other side but I cannot understand how they feel this will help overall.
Because it will eliminate the need for a turn signal & then a full green now Central will have a full green light right away so you won't need a green as long therby shortening the red for Route 9....

This is awesome!

No more shady business.

This part bothered me:

Quote
Prior to the opening of the March meeting, Board Chairman Abe Halberstam said, “Before we begin tonight’s meeting, I’d just like to warn my fellow board members that we’re being videotaped by a private citizen tonight, so be careful what you say and what you’re going to be saying on the record.”

Oh, and the fact that applicants are choosing to wait.  That's certainly indicative of something.

not necessarily, could just be the penchant for some people to deliberately misconstrue, edit and misrepresent facts and words to further their agenda.

Please. It's because they're doing things that would make the public furious. And they;re afraid that people will finally find out what goes on at these meetings.

Yes I know, anyone can go sit through many hours of meetings each month - but people don't have the time. Now with the videos available people have the ability to uncover the scams that these boards are facilitating...and they're petrified!!

Menashe - time to kick these people off the board!

What are you talking about??
The guy posts the full,unedited videos.

If anything, now nothing can be misconstrued, edited and misrepresented as it always has.

Not to mention the fact that the transcripts af these meetings are supposed to be available anyway. - conveniently the power brokers have total control over that process...  vdl.

The entire recording is available on youtube, nothing to be worried about.
