Palmer Says Slow Down on Norton Avenue

Palmer Township supervisors agree to post a speed limit sign on Norton Avenue by St. Jane Church.

A resident of Norton Avenue – a short road off Hartley Avenue, near – requested that place a speed limit or a "Watch Children" sign on the street.

On Monday night, agreed.

"The issue is," said Public Works Director Tom Adams, "that when St. Jane Church is in session, drivers use the side street instead of Hartley Avenue."

Supervisor Chairman David Colver asked which made better sense, the speed limit sign or "Watch Children."

"The road is only two blocks long," Fretz said. Since the signs are meant as a deterrent, "it doesn't make a difference which sign is used."

In the end, supervisors agreed to post a 25 MPH sign on both sides of Norton.
