Lenox residents request three-way stop

Scenic Avenue residents John and Rosanne Brasher have requested three-way stop signs placed at Scenic and Lorraine avenues in the Scenic Heights neighborhood, just south of the village.

In a written statement prepared for the Lenox board, Roseanne Brasher said after a number of small animals were injured and killed and a number of "almost" incidences with children occurred in front of her home she felt important steps should be taken to help prevent and avoid any future incidences.

"Although the speed limit in our neighborhood is 30 mph, I've yet to see two vehicles in a row that didn't speed past the intersections without even watching for children or pets," Brasher wrote. "This is especially true during the winter months, along with high snow banks making it difficult to see."

John Brasher said cars travel way too fast down the street.

The Brasher's moved to Canastota from Liverpool two years ago. Roseanne Brasher said she was surprised that no one had requested stop signs at the two intersections before.

The board agreed to send the request to the county Traffic and Safety Committee for review.
