F Street Speed Watch
This form makes it easy to indicate the speeds you see, the times, and if you can identify the vehicle. With the Speed Watch Form, we can get extra attention for our neighborhood from the police.
It is always helpful if you can get video of speeders. If you ever have the chance to snap a picture or video of the radar speed limit sign while a vehicle is speeding, do it!
We will put out a call to collect all these sheets in the future. The best way to collect information would be to dedicate some hours just sitting and watching traffic (i.e., 3 hours at a time sitting on the sidewalk or your porch). In the future, even having all the neighbors outside of their homes along the corridor would send a message.

City of Eureka 2040 GENERAL PLAN
Did you know that there is a proposed plan in place to add a stop light at F Street / Hodgson Street and H Street / Hodgson Street?
Also, F Street has been deemed a “Minor Arterial – Two to four lane high-speed, high- capacity roadways that connect regional facilities, and accommodate regional, intra-city and sub-regional travel. The primary difference between major and minor arterials is the relative importance of the roadway in serving through traffic.”
I am surprised by this because from Harris St to Willow St, the road is much more narrow than from Willow to Herrick. Have you ever noticed that?

City of Eureka Transportation Safety Action Plan 2015
The Mission of the Transportation Safety Action Plan is to make Eureka safe for all modes of transportation.
The purpose of this Transportation Safety Action Plan (TSAP) is to improve safety for all modes of transportation in the City of Eureka. To achieve this, we are focusing on two goals: collision reduction and quality of life preservation. Our collision reduction goal is reasonable and attainable, our areas of emphasis are data supported, our strategies are defensible, and our results will be monitored to ensure continuing success.
The preservation of our quality of life is a separate goal of this plan whose objective is maintaining calm neighborhood traffic. This section identifies traffic calming measures by function, providing a matrix for addressing neighborhood concerns. Requests for reviews of this type will be heard through the Transportation Safety Commission public forum.
