City briefs: Hamilton Blvd., water, sewer meeting
Vote scheduled onHamilton changes
Hamilton Boulevard could have a four-way stop sign at Magnolia Avenue and a lower speed limit by March, city officials said Tuesday.
City Council members will vote on the traffic changes during their regular meeting on Feb. 24. They are trying to reduce the use of Hamilton Boulevard as a thoroughfare through the North End.
Several residents who attended a Jan. 27 hearing on the matter said they preferred a four-way stop sign.
Residents weren't as supportive of a proposal to lower the speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph because that might have involved elimination of parking spaces along intersections to improve sight distance.
