Traffic Control Access Gates

The Town of Foxfield Board of Trustees has approved two traffic control access gates.  There will be one on E. Fremont Avenue east of Parker Road and another on S. Richfield Street south of E. Hinsdale Avenue.

 

On April 18, SEH presented preliminary designs for the gates to the Board of Trustees.  Costs and design for some changes were requested by the Board and the revised designs were presented at the May 2 Board of Trustees meeting.  The Board chose to move forward with Option 2 for the gate on E. Fremont Avenue.  Final designs will be prepared and presented to the Board for approval within 2-4 weeks.

Many thanks to Debbie Bakarich and a group of students from Our Lady of Loreto who donated their time to do some cleaning up in our Open Space, as well as put up two bird houses and a dog waste station.  This project was coordinated by Trustee Pam Thompson and her husband, Tim, who spent Saturday, April 27 working with the children.
