Speed Limit Lowered on Kemp Avenue

Cheers rang out in the Monday night after a resolution was passed to lower the speed limit on Kemp Avenue.

Lowering the speed limit on Kemp Avenue was originally proposed by residents during a . During the January Council meeting, Cathy Goldin, a Kemp Avenue resident, presented a proposal to the Council and explained her and other resident concerns for the safety of traveling students.

 “Kemp has both and students traveling on it,” said Goldin. “What Third Street is to Knollwood, Kemp is to Sickles.”

At the Feb. 27 Council meeting Council members voted in favor of lowering the speed limit on Kemp Avenue from 25 mph to 20 mph. The Council's vote resulted in cheers from present Kemp Aveune residents who expressed their happiness about the change in speed limit.

An exact date as to when the speed limit will be exactly changed was not provided, however residents can expect to see signs with the new speed limit soon.
