  1. Busy day and evening so we won’t be able to attend . Our big concerns is having the city put up red blinking lights at 208th PL SW & 60th Ave W . I guess a lot of people don’t see those stop signs ? I walk my dog up there nightly and there’s 5 or 6 cars that drive right through like they never see it .
    But it is a very busy intersection with kids that also take that back trail to the park

    1. Hello Timothy,

      I have forwarded your message to our Traffic Engineer Paul Coffelt. If you would like to reach out to him directly, please feel free to do so by emailing I’m certain he would be happy to talk with you regarding your concerns.

  2. I fully agree with the cross walk at 208th and 60th. The cars don’t stop as I had had 3 encounters of almost being hit in “the crosswalk” and the drivers act like oh well. 208th Street is the testing street for the car dealerships and their again speed doesn’t matter. Complained to the city numerous times about the speeding. When somebody get injured maybe someone will listen. City council member lives on the street.
