Stoplight & Crosswalk needed at the Dogwood Intersection

We are circulating the following petition throughout the community. It asks the Washington County Board of Commissioners to include a full traffic signal with crosswalks at the corner of Dogwood and Saltzman as part of the current Saltzman Road improvement project. The petition will be available for signing at the May CPO1 meeting, and there are also petitions at the library, Bales Thriftway, Walgreens and other nearby locations.

The Land Use & Transportation Department’s study said there wasn’t enough pedestrian traffic crossing Saltzman to warrant a light. But we in Cedar Mill know that the reason that few people cross now is because it’s too dangerous!

In addition, when the road project is complete, the southern Saltzman entrance to the Library/Walgreen’s parking lot will close. All vehicle traffic wanting to enter or exit the lot will have to use the Dogwood exit. A light will increase safe and efficient entry and exit for the parking lot.

Anyone can sign this petition. You don’t have to be a registered voter, or a resident of the county. If you use the roads and sidewalks in this area, your voice can be heard by signing this petition.

You can sign with just your name and zip code. By giving us your zip code, the Commissioners will be able to tell where support for this light is coming from. If you share your email address with us, we’ll keep you informed of our progress. We will not share your information with anyone, except to deliver the petition to the County Commissioners.

This petition is supported by the Cedar Mill Library Association, Bales/Findley Property Management, CPO 1, area businesses and citizens like you.

Petition to the Washington County Board of Commissioners

We, the undersigned, are citizens of unincorporated Washington County and/or residents, workers, shoppers, or travelers in the Cedar Mill area. We join together to request the Washington County Board of Commissioners to direct the Land Use and Transportation Department to include a full four-way traffic signal with pedestrian crossing (stoplight) at the intersection of NW Dogwood Street and NW Saltzman Road as part of the current Saltzman Road Improvement Project.

This stoplight will greatly increase the safety of pedestrian and auto traffic. It will facilitate commercial and public use of the adjacent properties, including St. Pius X and Christ United Methodist churches, St. Pius School and CUMC Preschool, the Cedar Mill Community Library, and the businesses in adjacent shopping centers. It will help to handle increased traffic caused by the closure of the southern Saltzman entrance to the Milltowner Center on the northeast corner of Cornell/Saltzman. It is called for in the Town Center plan.

Current plans for the Saltzman project do not include a stoplight at this intersection. Providing the stoplight now makes sense for the above reasons and we ask the Washington County Board of Commissioners to support it.
