School has started in many communities so SLOW DOWN, not to mention just slow down.
Sharon Woods Blvd is 35mph and the rest of the streets is 25mph.
I believe several folks found out today what speeding costs as CPD was out issuing tickets.
Life is short – SLOW DOWN!
Alpine Elementary would like to have a volunteer or two to help with the afternoon crossing guard duties during the school year.
Sharon Woods Blvd. is 35mph not 50, not even 40.
The flashing lights in the school zones means 20mph.
Skywae is 25mph.
The side streets are 25mph. Just because many streets will be re-paved does not mean the speed limit is raised.
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION AND SLOW DOWN – this is your community and we want EVERYONE safe.
Thank you SWCA for allowing me to represent you before the Senate Civil Justice Committee on October 7th. I spoke in support of Senate Bill 201 which adds Violence to the current Nuisance Law. The us in this presentation was with a representative from Forrest Park, Officers Clinger & Geis & Asst. Prosecutor Bill Sperlazza. This was the 2nd hearing for SB 201 and there should be 1 more hearing before a vote is taken to adopt this bill.
Re: SB 201- Civil Justice Committee
Mr. Chairman, Senators
Thank you for allowing us to stand before you today in support of SB 201.
My name is Patricia Wood and I have lived in Columbus since 1966 and specifically the Salem/Sharon Woods area for almost 40 years. I am currently a trustee on the Sharon Woods civic Assoc and the block watch coordinator.
I do have support from the SWCA to represent our community.
It is our opinion adding VIOLENCE to the Nuisance law is a “no brainer.”
Officers Clinger & Geis, Asst. Prosecutors Bill Sperlazza, Wes Phillips and many other city depth. have worked very hard these last 2-3 years to get the 161/71 hotel’s cleaned up. We are currently in a good place with some hotel owners now running a legitimate & clean business which will draw people & new businesses to our area and Columbus.
Our crime rate has significantly decreased since the closing of these hotels. This huge effort done by so many, has told the drug dealers and prostitutes that our community is not going to allow this kind of illegal activity.
One of the continued problems is VIOLENCE. We have had shootings, with the loss of a life at hotel’s, we have had shootings with loss of life at Bars. We have had shootings at Cabaret’s. We had a shooting outside of an “after hours club” at Karl & 161. The health club across the street was riddled with bullets breaking their windows while they had customers inside. Thank heavens no one lost their life.
If we want our communities to feel safe, to survive and grow and we want Columbus & the rest of Ohio citizens to feel safe in their homes, driving their car & we want visitors to experience the best of Columbus & our State then Violence Must be added to the nuisance law, it is a no brainer.
Trustee & Block Watch Coordinator
Your support is needed by either writing or e-mailing your representative to support the following nuisance bill – or by attending the upcoming hearing (see below). This is not a one party issue, it is an issue for Republicans, Democrats & Independents – so let’s get together as a community to support this bill. The crime along the 161/I-71 area has significantly decreased because of the closing of the “bad” hotels – so let’s get this bill passed. This bill is so important for our community and the entire State of Ohio. It will add violence, i.e. shootings & murders, to the nuisance law and in turn help to close places such as hotels, clubs etc. where such violence has occurred.
To contact the representative for our area here is the information & feel free to contact others.
