    Regarding: • Phil suggested that we consider installing graveled walkways beside traffic islands to provide pedestrians with a safe place to walk and this will be referred to the GOMC for further discussion.

    Concerns include the following:
    The cost and maintenance to install the gravel. It will create a hazard for the grass cutting and will pose a problem when the streets are cleared with the high powered blower. Gravel is much harder to walk on then grass and will not look good. The real issue is the bikers, not the walkers. Hope th see items are considered.

    With respect to gravel walkways along traffic circles…
    My wife and I walk the island daily. Most drivers on Seabrook are courteous and follow posted speed limits. I occasionally observe drivers try to pass bicyclists while inside traffic circles and one driver honked at me as he passed while running up on the inside curb.
    I expect most residences will object to having their landscaped yard destroyed by a gravel walkway and a gravel walkway is not even feasible on many of the islands, especially if a walkway is installed on both sides of the road. Runners and bicyclists will not use a gravel walkway, which mostly means that this will not really achieve the desired outcome.
    I propose a simpler solution. Change the speed limit with the following sign at each traffic circle of concern: Speed limit 10 MPH if pedestrians are present in the traffic circle.
