Jackson Street Closure
By Diana Amundson
November 08, 2005
I would like to clarify why Jackson Street is closed each year.
In October of 1998 I called the local police department asking
if they would block off Jackson street because of all the children.
I was told that a petition would need to be signed by my neighbors
approving this closure. I then went door to door getting the
needed signatures and was very pleased that everyone felt as
I did that the safety of the children should be first. I submitted
the signed petition to the police department and they have done
as the neighborhood residents have asked by closing the street
for a few hours.
There have been times when
I have not made it home before the street is blocked off. I
parked my car and walked home, then when the street was opened
up again returned for my car.
I have also kept a copy of
the signatures in case you have forgotten whether or not you
signed the petition. Thirty-three people signed the petition.
Please feel free to call me if you have any questions.
