Kim said he would get back to the council with a report on hedge trimming.
Pierce also asked newly installed Councilman Steve Goldsworthy, who has taken on the chairmanship of the council’s streets and roads committee, to look into the matter. “We need to prevent pedestrians from going into that area without the hedges trimmed,” Pierce said.
Planned parking at the new library also was discussed, with some concerns about placement of handicapped parking being at an inconvenient distance from the entrance to the library, and some residents worried about possible traffic issues that could occur with the smaller upper level parking area. However, Kim said, that area is a staff parking lot and shouldn’t have enough traffic to generate problems.
