According to emails obtained by Speak Up, the engineering company working on Landmark’s student housing project (which is owned by Flagstaff City Councilmember Mark Woodson) says the Rt 66 intersection at the site is too dangerous to even install a pedestrian crosswalk for the 650 students who will need to cross the road. It cites “sight distance” and “approach speed concerns” as the primary reasons.
In other words, cars don’t have enough time to see the crosswalk, and they’re traveling too fast. Sounds dangerous. The solution?
The developer plans to complete a study of what might be done a full year after 650 students have been crossing the street there.
Note to Planning and Zoning Commission: THAT’S NOT PLANNING.
