Donald,

I am sending the speed zone data, we have had issues with counters being installed along this stretch of road so there is limited data, they tend to not last longer than a day or two before they are hit usually by a lawn mower.

The Town has ordered new signs that say slow camp area, as soon as they arrive they will be installed along West Shore Road, I will also look at installing an additional speed sign and will discuss with our road foreman locations.

Also if you could let members of the association know, the Town has a reminder and a request, new driveways do require a permit and work within the road right of way may need approval from the Cabot Selectboard as well as a permit, this includes installation of utilities, fences and tree trimming, anything that crosses the road must be approved prior to installation by the road foreman as well.

We have had some issues with the installation of pavement on driveways in Cabot. When the work extends into the Town road or extends into the road edge the Town cannot properly gipde the road surface and materials in this area, causing damage to both the landowners drive and Town equipment

The Town is requesting that when driveways are paved on gravel surfaced roads that the work halt a minimum of a foot outside of the edge of the roadway. This allows the grader to properly crown the road surface and will not impede the plow trucks. It is also a good idea to discuss any driveway work with the road foreman prior to starting. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you,

Karen Deasy
