Chief Gardner stated that based on the study, excessive speeds do not appear to be a founded problem on N. Chester Avenue and traffic volume is heavier than one would expect in a residential area. Chief Gardner recommended to install 25 MPH signs at appropriate intervals along the lengths of N. and S. Chester Avenue, remove any existing 15 MPH signs on S. Chester, Lehman, and Spring Avenue. Speed timing lines can be painted on N. and S. Chester Avenue for enforcement purposes and installation of illuminated stop signs at all four corners on the intersection of Moreland and Chester Avenue.

Chester Avenue, stated that without with some positive amount of restriction to the traffic that cuts through, he doesn’t see how any of the Chief’s recommendations will deter the traffic.

Chief Gardner stated that he mentioned to Council about having Penndot check the timing on the York Road signals and he also stated that Moreland and Chester are where most of the problems are occurring.

KGS citizens who are rising senior in high school will spend the week intensively working together to self-govern the state of “Keystone,” meant to model current Pennsylvania’s local, county, and state government. Citizens will have the opportunity to campaign and run for office, draft and present legislation in the KGS House of Representatives and Senate, and to be actively involved in the Judiciary System as modeled by the state of Pennsylvania. At the end of the week, two KGS citizens will be nominated to attend Girls Nation. Girls Nation “senators” will convene in Washington D.C. to campaign and run for “national” offices, draft, and pass legislation in “Congress,” and could possibly meet their State Representatives, Senators, and the President of the United States.

She has been here for a week and has learned about Environmental issues, day to day operations at Borough Hall, Land Development and tonight how Borough Government works. KGS is a challenging but rewarding experience. At the end of the week, we ask that all our citizens return to their communities with what they learned and be a force of good in their hometown. Because of this, our motto is, “Using our Powers for Good.” Each of our citizens has the power to make change in their community; we ask that you be that force for good.
