    Just for the record, if I had Harry Potter’s magic wand I would make both Moody and Melvina cul-de-sacs at the north end immediately south of the allies and make the north half of Hiawatha at Lehigh a half cul-de-sac like the one on Hiawatha at Navajo and Devon. This would force traffic to go around the North Edgebrook/Wildwood triangle instead of cutting through it (the shortest distance between two points continues to be a straight line) as it does now.

    The argument against cul-de-sacs has always been that they also prevent emergency vehicles from entering a street and my counter argument is that I think that some place some where a traffic engineer could design a cul-de-sac barrier that would allow an emergency vehicle to pass through if such a design doesn't already exist some place some where.

    The second argument against cul-de-sacs is that they cost a lot of money and my counter argument is that the North Edgebrook /Wildwood triangle pays a lot of money in property taxes so we will be getting back what we already pay in.

  • Addendum: This would also give rise to the opportunity to close Hiawatha between SMOW and Wildwood school during school hours creating a car free campus zone.
