Neighbors along Skyline Blvd. and surrounding roads have experienced persistent problems with speeding cars and motorcycles, unsafe driving, vehicle noise, heavy traffic and road maintenance needs.
As a first step toward finding effective ways to mitigate these problems, FPNA is asking for your feedback on a brief questionnaire.
Your response is important to help identify the severity and location of traffic problems, to gauge neighborhood support and involvement in combating the problems, and to help county agencies put measures in place to mitigate them.
