Board's  letter to the Town of Cary regarding Safety of our Streets. 
The High Visability Crosswalk across Turner Creek Rd has been tentatievly approved. Awaiting approval of NC DOT and town council approval expected to go before the town council in November-December 2014. 
 
Lastest update from the Town of cary (November 10, 2014) 
I wanted to address the emails we have been receiving lately to hopefully clear any confusion about this project.
 First, I wanted to update on the schedule.  NCDOT has reviewed our request and are supportive of the speed reduction.  [speed reduction from 35 mph to 30 mph, Ed]  We are expecting to receive a memo from them soon with an approval and the speed zone ordinance paperwork.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a time frame on that paperwork but I will inquire further from DOT.  We are also receiving quotes for materials – the quotes for the signs are very good and will begin to order since very soon.  We have not heard back from quotes on the pavement markings but that leads into a little bit of bad news.  We will not get an approval on the speed limit reduction this month so we’re looking at December, at the earliest, if we can get the paperwork back from NCDOT in the next week.  If not, we will have to wait until the January meeting.  This means we will not be able to do the crosswalk and SCHOOL markings in thermoplastic material this year.  Instead, we will look into applying the markings this winter in paint and then reapply with thermo in the Spring.
 
As to what work is being done, we will be installing a hi-visibility crosswalk on Turner Creek Rd at the intersection with Amiable Loop/Alliance Circle, going from the NE corner to the SE corner.  Also, we will be applying standard crosswalks and stop bars on each of the side streets where there is a stop sign.
 
Take a look at this intersection in downtown Cary for the hi-visibility crosswalk (on the left) and the standard crosswalk (on the right):

Additionally, there are various signing modifications and additions including Bike Lane signs and accompanying No Parking Sign for the bike lane areas.  The school zone flasher assembly on the west side of the school will be relocated to a position closer to Amiable/Alliance.
 
Let me know if there are any other questions.  We will continue to move forward with this work as the approvals occur.
 
Thanks,
 David Spencer, PE
 
Folks, this is still a work in process. like the Bike lanes, which have always been there, the ToC has agreed to see how this works. There are a lot of cars paring on the street to drop off and pick up their children. those needs need to be considered. Maybe use of the Clubhouse parking lot, or other ideas may be needed. Hopefully this will solve the problems, and if not - back to the table, and that is the committment from the ToC.  
May need Wake County involved with the school buses. For now lets see how this works. 
Please direct comments to the NHW  or the board 
 
REZONING   we, as a community, have successfully fought the 120 unit Town Home developemnt first proposed. 
   In Sept,  Ed and Joel met with Jason Barron, the Herndon's attorney and Jeremy Medlin of M/I Homes. 
    Jeremy, has said that they are looking to develop quality Single Family Homes in the density of 3.1 units per acre. About 50 Homes. The application allows up to 4 units per acre. 
The next meeting with M/I Homes is scheduled for Nov 11, 2014. 
See M/I Homes  http://mihomes.com/Find-Your-New-Home/Raleigh-Homes click #4 to bring up Homes built near Harmony. We will be having more discussions in late Novemenber.  please direct comments to the board

~ Traffic Guidelines ~
Please use caution by obeying Harmony speed limits, crosswalks, and signage.
 
The speed limit on Turner Creek Road is 35 mph, but only *25 mph* on all other streets in our neighborhood.  There are also stop signs at every Turner Creek Road intersection. Some drivers
disregard road signs and create dangerous situations.  This is a particular concern, given the
number of kids in our neighborhood and our close proximity to Turner Creek Elementary School.
 
Traffic Safety Team of the Cary Police Dept recommends we call: 919-319-4521 to report any
neighborhood traffic concerns like speeding, recklessness, failure to yield/stop, etc.
Contact the Police to report unsafe driving behavior when you see it. Thanks for doing your part!

~ School Crosswalk Safety ~
                                                          
 
Turner Creek Elementary School Crosswalks require additional attention and consideration.
Please SLOW DOWN, OBEY TRAFFIC LAWS, EXERCISE ADDED CAUTION, DO NOT BLOCK ACCESS.
 
Accompany your kids when they walk to and from school.  Report unsafe drivers to the Police.
 
Remember, it is unlawful to park within 25 feet of a street corner.  Parents who shuttle their
children to and/or from our school bus stops, must not park within 25 feet of the street corner.
By doing so, you are compromising the safety of all pedestrians and impeding traffic flow.
You may be subject to a ticket from the Town of Cary Police.
 
The Town of Cary Ordinance , Chapter 34, Article 4 , Section 34-103 Subd # 11 reads:
"No Stopping , Standing, or Parking within 25 Feet from the intersection of curblines."
