SEA BLUE TRAIL SPEED HUMP– Boca Winds Board President Mr. Pontrelli addressed the Board on behalf of the Boca Winds Water’s Edge Neighborhood and presented the Ashley Park Board with a few traffic calming alternatives that could possibly be effective in slowing down speeding vehicles on Sea Blue Trail rather than the proposed speed hump. Mr. Bouras informed the Board Members that the Boca Winds Board instructed management to contact Palm Beach County with a request to postpone the speed hump installation on Sea Blue Trail for 60 days until the Ashley Park and Boca Winds Boards review speed hump alternatives. Mr. Bouras invited Ashley Park representatives to attend a conference call with Palm Beach County Engineering Traffic Division to discuss the installation of the speed hump or other alternatives that may lessen the vehicle speeding on Sea Blue Trail. The Board Members discussed this matter and confirmed that the Ashley Park Board is desiring the installation of speed hump and is not in favor of any other alternatives.
Mr. Wasylowsky made a motion to confirm that the Ashley Park Board is still in favor of the installation of a speed hump on Sea Blue Trail. Mr. McKay seconded this motion and it was unanimously approved by the Board.
The Board Members agreed that there is no need for a conference call with Palm Beach County Traffic Division since Ashley Park is still desiring the speed hump over any alternative measure.
