NEW BUSINESS:

 


1)  RHS Drop-Off./ Pick-Up-- Discussion of new school schedule starting April 19th and the need to alert drivers/ students of the changes being made. The concern relates to pick-up/drop-off safety needs when up to 70% of RHS students return to full-time morning classes and return home for on-line lessons in the afternoon. Similar concerns relate to remaining schools although these buildings have a higher proportion of nearby homes. The safety concerns along North Irving Street near RHS, an issue discussed at the October 15, 2020 CSAC meeting, were reviewed.


2)  The Police Chief is ending the temporary suspension of enforcement of residential area parking regulations as of May 1st. The need for publicizing this change by e-mail, phone alert, etc. was encouraged. It was noted with regret that the Police Department's CSAC liaison was not available at the meeting to help the facilitate discussions and advance actions related to New Business Items 1&2.
