    Back By Popular Demand: Traffic Calming Signs

    Once again, due to the high interest of Parkside residents, the individual PCA Traffic Committee members have personally contributed the financial resources necessary to launch a traffic calming sign campaign.  The first 100 signs were dispersed in a matter of days!  These signs have gotten the attention of the media, as well as drivers and residents who are frustrated by the constant barrage of traffic infractions throughout our neighborhoods. 

        In response to the success of our initial order, another 100 signs have been ordered by the committee. Please consider contributing to this campaign to make our streets safer. Each of these signs cost approximately $10 dollars to produce, so please consider a donation of at least $10 via the below link when requesting a sign.  

    It is our committee’s hope that another successful campaign will assure future actions on our streets! Signs may be picked up, and donations may be made online (above) or at the PCA office, 2318 Main Street.
