Will the Roads be Repaired in Munsey Park?
The monthly meeting of the Board of Trustees of Munsey Park began on a light note with amusing anecdotes from Police Sergeant Ward- the night supervisor liaison from the 6th Precinct to this area. He was reporting on the traffic-calming measures being taken to help reduce speeding on Park Avenue. Susan Auriemma, co-chair of the Coalition for a Safer Manhasset also spoke. They described the use of the speed reading device which has been placed at the intersection of Park Avenue and Munsey Place and the fact that it seems to have slowed down most vehicles. However, it will not become a permanent fixture since that procedure has been shown to be effective for only about six months when it becomes part of the scenery and drivers tend to ignore it.
