SCATS ~~ This sounds like the Walmart CYA precursor for the Town of Greece ... so the powers that be can claim "There's nothing more we can do, we already studied it."

Why would the area want to reduce traffic? Those that live in the area want new business to revitalize the area. If traffic flow is reduced does that not impact possible new businesses and the influx of cash by passer bys? NIMBY syndrom perhaps, want more business and economic growth with out the inconveniences that come with it. Coffee

And BTW wether it is retail or small business/corps. that build in the Dewey Ave corridor, there will be more traffic, either by shoppers or employess.

How about having the town enforce the speed limit on Dewey Ave.On second thought that would require some leadership in the town, and we clearly don't have any of that here.

To 12:13PM ~~ Town leadership?? What's that? This topic wasn't even mentioned at last night's Town Board meeting from what I've been told! IMHO, I don't think they want anyone to know about this meeting. It was a tiny item tucked down on the "locals" page of the D&C website. If no one shows up, they can do as they please, right?

Coffee- maybe some worry about an influx of scooter traffic after Wallymart opens (ha ha ha!)

To 12:31PM ~~ That's quite a visual LOL

Careful now. We don't want to hurt anyone's E-feelings.

To 12:13PM ~~ It occurs to me that you might be interested in the eye-opening video about traffic enforcement in Greece. Here's the link:

After you go to that link, you need to click on the link Titled " Pushing the Limit: Speeders in Greece" from the column on the left side for the correct video to play.
