(Atlantic) Atlantic Mayor Dave Jones wants to hear the public’s opinion on the proposed speed limit change on 22nd Street from Highway 71 to Olive Street and Chestnut to Highway 6.
The Community Protection Committee is meeting Friday afternoon, February 24, at 4:00 p.m. in the city council chambers at City Hall, to discuss whether or not the City Council should lower the speed limit on those two stretches of 22nd Street from 45-to-35 miles per hour.
"Everyone is welcome," stated Atlantic Mayor Dave Jones. "In reality, it only takes 15-seconds longer at 35-miles per hour than the current 45-mph.The issue is safety, so let's look ahead alittle bit."
In addition the Community Protection Committee is scheduled to discuss deer hunting during the committee meeting on Friday afternoon as well.
