ATV law will apply to subdivision road

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The Morgan County Commission on Friday approved a request to apply the county all-terrain vehicle ordinance to Parkside Drive in the Cacapon East subdivision.

Cacapon East is off Rock Gap Road in southern Morgan County.

Commission President Glen Stotler said the commission will provide notice to law enforcement officials that ATVs are restricted on Parkside Drive "effective today."

A petition was filed to the Morgan County Commission by Cacapon East Subdivision to ban the use of ATVs, and their representative, Linda Dixon, told the Morgan County Commission on Friday that 31 of the 43 lot owners in the subdivision voted for the restriction at the Oct. 23, 2004, property owners association meeting.

Parkside Drive is the "main road to the top of the hill and turns into our community," Dixon said.

The county ordinance went into effect in August 2004.

Resident seeks stop sign in subdivision

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Allan Isaacs, president of the Oak Ridge Homeowners Association, told the Morgan County Commission on Friday that the subdivision needs a stop sign on Mason Road at the intersection of Mason and Foulton roads.

Oak Ridge is near Pleasant View Elementary School in eastern Morgan County.

Isaacs said Foulton goes to the top of a hill and Mason crosses it.

"When coming up the hill, you can't see," he said.

Isaacs suggested the stop sign currently at Householder Road be moved to Mason "or put in another one."

Morgan County Commission President Glen Stotler said the commission would talk with John Coleman, the Morgan County superintendent of the West Virginia Department of Highways.

"Let us talk to Coleman and see what we can do," Stotler said.
