Dear Mayor & Council...
I am writing you in regards to damage that happened to our fencing early in the morning this past Friday, Sept 27, 2013. As you can see in the photos, this individual lost control of his vehicle as they headed south bound, grazed one of our pines,and took out over 50 feet of fencing in the process.
As is the unfortunate norm, the guilty party left the scene of the accident in a late model Blue Honda (thanks for the parts, Mr. Offender!) Thankfully, this individual did not lose their life.
We did call the Milton Police when we noticed it the following day and he was very professional and helpful.
As I have requested since before the city incorporated in 2006, more must be done to address the severe speeding and lack of respect for these open road neighborhood zones. Such residents should have the same opportunity for a safe, quiet, litter free environment as any subdivision resident.
Within the last ten years on Bethany Road alone, there have been mailboxes and fencing damaged on a regular basis, two fatalities, as well as dangerous speeding and trash daily. Noise pollution is also a constant.
It has been said that leaders lead. It is my hope that this particular email doesn't fall on deaf ears this time around and that the City of Milton GA works with open road residents not only to lower all open road neighborhood speeds to 35 as Alpharetta has, but also works to create an awareness and enforcement campaign that Freemanville, Bethany, Hopewell, Providence, and other open road neighborhoods are residential zones as well. I am confident that working together, we can make a positive impact while saving lives.
