Ever thought of another stop sign?
To the Editor:
After reading the 'Arch bridge closure snarls traffic in West Linn' article, I wonder if Susan Hanson or anyone involved in this project has ever thought of placing a stop sign on the northbound side of Highway 43, across from the stop sign at the intersection of Willamette Falls Drive and Highway 43.
This would force the vehicles turning around in the mill parking lot - or the more blatant ones that make the illegal U-turn right in front of the West Linn Police Department station - come to a complete stop. This should stop them from darting in front of a vehicle that has been waiting patiently to turn left from Willamette Falls Drive on to Highway 43 but have to yield to the highway traffic even if they made an illegal turn.
Sorry you thought NA took your sign
To the Editor:
I live in Barrington Heights and saw the Citizen's View by Alexandra DiFrancesco from the June 30 West Linn Tidings.
It is true that the (Barrington Heights) Homeowners Association does not allow any signage - 'permanent or temporary' - on any Barrington Heights common areas, or public right-of-way adjacent to those common areas, and this request has the support of the West Linn Police Department.
Many garage sale and open house signs appear every week in our neighborhood, and I am one of the few homeowners who tries to alert those who put up signs. Either they are spoken to, or they get an orange card with information about this rule taped onto their sign.
I was sorry to read that you feel that the BH neighborhood stole your signs. Truly, your efforts were for a worthy cause, but this was done by someone unacquainted not only with our rules, but with 'The Golden Rule.'
