  1. My daughter has swim at the Y right there so I’m there every Saturday. Absolutely need a light at this intersection. The rise in the road makes it nearly impossible to see oncoming traffic from either direction. Not to mention the Right Turn Only when leaving the Y only to attempt an illegal turn around in JJ’s parking lot.
    Terribly designed and sorely neglected, this needs to be a very high priority for the town before someone gets killed.
