BY COUNCILOR HOGG:

BE IT RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are requested to produce, or cause to be produced, a traffic engineering study of the effect on vehicle volumes, movements and safety of a proposed development of a motel adjacent to the south tower of the Aerial Lift Bridge including:

(a) How far east an entrance to the proposed development could be located;

(b) How long a turning lane (if any) could be provided;

(c) Whether one-way traffic into the proposed development by the Aerial Lift Bridge with an Eighth Street exit would be the most reasonable solution;

(d) The estimated impact of traffic generated by the proposed development on traffic on Minnesota Point;

for an amount not to exceed $4,500 payable from Fund 100-500-1930.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: Several concerned citizens have commented upon possible effects a motel development could have on traffic movements on Park Point. The council requests a more scientific analysis than that which it has heard at recent meetings.
