3. Public input:
A. Several residents were present to discuss the paving work done on West Shore Rd. Some concerns were that paving may increase the speed of automobiles and be a hazard to pedestrians and cyclists. The sheriff is aware of the paving and should monitor speeds. Skip Brown has seen the sheriff using radar near Whiteâ€™s Beach since the paving occurred. Melissa Hood, who lives on West Shore Rd., understands the need for the paving from the Roy Marsh Trail to Hall Rd., as there has been a noticeable increase in the number of cars in the past few years and that the gravel road has not been holding up well. She would like the Board to consider a pavement ends sign and a lower speed limit West of Hall Rd. and past Whiteâ€™s Beach.
