What is the county’s problem? If the traffic parameters at this location satisfy any one of the Warrants cited in the MUTCD, and the signal construction has been fully funded by the developer, the signal should be installed ASAP (case closed). The fact that there is another traffic control signal in the neighborhood does not in any way negate traffic safety deficiencies at this location.
If the county assumes the other traffic control signal at the Raydon intersection is somehow not needed, they should conduct a traffic engineering survey at that location and if results do not satisfy any of MUTCD warrants, then that traffic signal should be removed or the controller reset to flash mode. Or perhaps on flash at least during the off hours at Raydon
Any concerns the county may have regarding the interruption of traffic flow along Williamson caused by two adjacent signalized intersections is by far outweighed by the need for traffic safety at those intersections. Any real traffic friction concerns of the county could also be mitigated by interconnecting the two signals

Greg,I will be at one of your next couple council meetings to discuss this issue on the record. I will fully advise the public of our position. We have given the city a viable option and will continue to try to help. By saying we were not willing to meet and implying that we have not been fully supportive is not the full story (i.e. their concerns unfortunately do not change the viable option). I am very disappointed that you would imply am unwillingness to help as the the county has done its part to accommodate the city changing its mind from a prior city commission and administration (i.e. the city made the decision to where the light is). I will ask staff to attend with me as well.Josh

We shared this design with Raydon. While Raydon was sympathetic with the Royal Palm neighborhood issues they desired a meeting with City and County officials to discuss this issue so they could explain their concerns. We were unsuccessful in getting the County to agree to meet with the affected parties.Greg KiselaCity ManagerSent from my iPadJosh,Thank you for the response. I look forward to hearing back from you and the city.Jamie
